This Beaded Twist is a great start for socks, gloves or even bigger projects!  I have only used it on socks to date.

The beaded twist has to be knit flat and then after the stitches are twisted; the knitting can be connected to knit in the round.

First 6 sts are knit and ready to twist.

Cast-on and knit the 8 rows with the beads.

With right side facing, knit side – not purl; take the right hand needle and twist it 360°.

At 180°.

This technique is easy to adjust to any stitch count; change the amount of stitches between each twist; twist more often or less often.  Work with a heavier yarn and bigger beads!

Add a little bling to your knits.

Happy Knitting

Your thoughts here
  1. Cast on and knit the 8 rows with the beads ?? How do you place your beads, and is that every row.

    would love to see a beaded shawlette, knitted sideways.

    Love your work

    • Hi Junie,

      The method used before the twist is the easiest of the pre-strung beading methods. Pre-string the amount of beads that you want, and pull them up between stitches. The good side of this method is the reverse stockinet side as the beads show best there.

      I have a pattern that another knitter had questions about and I did up the pictorial for her.

      I hope that this helps!
