I am thrilled to announce She-Knits Bead Feeder. Why "thrilled"?
This makes adding beads to your knitting or crocheting so much faster and easier than any other method I have found including using; a crochet hook, super floss or wire.
No more of having to pull out your beads, find your crochet hook... make sure you don't lose your beads everywhere or having to pick up one bead at a time. You can finally be ready to do your beaded work anywhere anytime with this one tool.

IMPORTANT--
She-Knits Bead Feeder works with size 6/0 beads (no smaller) and yarn weights up to regular fingering weight yarn (no heavier).

The She-Knits Bead Feeder holds 40-45 size 6/0 beads. The 6/0 beads I am referring to have large holes and are called Matsuno or Delicas. Please note: Sometimes the less expensive beads you buy at big box stores are of a different quality then other 6/0 beads and the bead holes on them might be smaller and may not work with the bead feeder. The 6/0 bead is the most typically used bead size in knitting and what I use for all my fingering weight shawl/scarf patterns that call for beads. (see my other listings for designs such as Cynthia (shown in the last picture of this listing), Shoshie, Me oh Maya + Robin.

Written tutorial directions
The way the She-Knits Bead Feeder works is; when you are ready to put a bead on your yarn loop:
1.Using the stem of the bead feeder lift off the first loop on your right hand needle (or crochet hook) onto the bead feeder.

2. Next, slip that yarn loop down into the notch at the very top of your bead feeder so the yarn sits below or flush with the top of the notch. If yarn does not fit 'down' into notch completely, the bead will not slide over it which might mean the yarn is too thick to use with the bead feeder. Sometimes it helps to slightly pull down on the bottom of the yarn loop that is underneath to get the yarn down into the notch. Be sure not to pull to hard so as not to break the tip of the bead feeder!

3. Next, with the tend of your index finger on the hand with which you are holding the bead feeder, push the bead over notch and off of bead feeder onto the yarn loop while keeping the yarn loop in the notch of the bead feeder . You can of course use your other hand to pull the bead over if that is easier for you.

4. Lastly using the bead feeder put the beaded yarn loop that is still in the notch of your bead feeder back onto your left hand needle and proceed with your knitting (or crocheting)
