This is THE answer to the crochet hook, floss threader, and wire methods of adding beads to knitting.

The tip has a hooked notch that will work with yarn as thick as light fingering weight, although some heavy sock yarns will not work easily with the 0.8 mm size. The bottom of the beader is bent so you can use it with a bead spinner. Comes with a tip protector and two stoppers for the bottom, because you might lose one and we don't want you to be unhappy.

You will get your best results if you tilt the beader up and press down the yarn into the slot with your thumb and forefinger while transferring the bead. Flick the bead over the beader and onto the yarn. Note that the beader has more of a notch than a hook and should not be used like a crochet hook. Trying to yank the yarn through the bead with the beader will shred your yarn!

Watch the video on Youtube, it will explain all.

The 1.0 mm size is designed for 6/0 or 8/0 beads with large holes, such as Delicas. It will hold about 60 8/0 Delicas.

The 0.8 mm size is for designed 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads. It will hold about 60 8/0 or 90 11/0 beads.

By the each.
