On this episode of Knitting Daily TV, we're talking custom embellishments. We'll go over some basic to innovative techniques that will give your fiber projects some final pizzazz.

Getting Started:


Host of Knitting Daily TV Eunny Jang demonstrates three techniques for adding beads to your knitwear. First, she'll show how to pre-string beads onto the yarn an inch at a time to preserve the wear and tear on the yarn, using a sewing needle and thread for easy pre-stringing. Second, she'll show how to place the beads on the front of the knitting, by slipping stitches purl-wise. And third, she'll demonstrate a technique that requires no pre-stringing but rather using beading wire.

How-To:


Laura Bryant and Barry Klein are back to discuss necklines, and how to customize any pattern with your choice of necklines. Their new book The New Knitter's Template dives into all the measurements, making your customizations even easier. Add extra stitches to a boatneck for a cowl-effect and give the illusion of shaping. Add a funnel neckline to avoid having to shape a garments neckline. Or, choose a deepor shallow V neckline, popular in many cardigans.
