That's what I'd also recommend. Michael's & Jo-Ann's have them. Just make sure to read the label to make sure it says 6/0 or E-beads on the label.CHinNWOH said:Size 6 seed beads also known as size 'E' beads when found in tubes at craft stores will work on worsted.
I agree; 6/0 seed beads will not work with worsted weight yarn. The bead holes are too small for the yarn diameter. You would need beads with a large hole.Debiknit said:I would think for worsted you'd need a larger bead than 6/0. I have tried stringing them on DK yarn and it was do-able but really hard to move the beads down the yarn as I worked. I think worsted would be way too thick.
I'm sorry that I neglected to mention that I'm crocheting. Everything that I know about using beads, I read on KP. Thank you for the suggestion, I'll give prestringing the beads a try.RoxyCatlady said:Of course, we all defaulted to answering about knitting with beads!! Despite my personal aversion to pre-stringing beads, I believe you do need to for crochet.
