One of the most popular methods for applying beads to knitting is the crochet hook method. The hook must be small enough to go through the bead but large enough to hook your yarn and draw it back through the bead. If you are unsure what size hook to use, the recommendations below serve as a good guide to get started but as always personal preference and experience does influence each individuals choice when selecting a hook for their beads.
For size 6/0 beads use a US13/ 0.9 mm crochet hook
For size 8/0 beads use a US17/ 0.5 mm crochet hook
