Bead Aid

The Bead Aid is a knitting tool handcrafted from the same steel as a sewing needle, and is used to add beads to any knitting or crochet work. It can do this without having to pre-string the beads.

The Bead Aid provides a faster and easier method than using crochet a hook and it can be used for any bead that fits over the yarn..
