There are a few different ways to do crochet beading, most of which include pre-threading beads onto your yarn before you begin working.
This method is such that you push up each bead as and when you want to place it. In crochet, this would place a bead to the back side of the work as this is where the yarn would be as each stitch is worked.
The below technique is slightly different in that the bead will appear at the front of the work. There is no need to pre-thread beads for this method. Instead, choose beads with a hole in the centre that the crochet hook size you are working with will fit through.
Try it on a ring of trebles using our illustrations below. We have used the example of doing it in the round. This is just what we've done in our above snowflake project.
How to do beaded crochet on a treble stitch
This is the stitch now completed as just one loop remains on the hook, with the bead prominently showing on the right side of the work.
Adding a few beads from your stash into a project is a lovely way to add a touch of sparkle to a something simple.
Opt for transparent or glittery beads to really catch the light for extra dazzle.
