When designing patterns that incorporate beads... do you normally have the knitter prestring the beads or add them one at a time with a crochet hook? Personally, I use a crochet hook, but I think this technique might be too fiddly for the people buying the patterns (eventually!).
I'm attempting my first beaded shawl right now and I would never want to string the beads first. I'm using the crochet hook method and it's so easy that I feel very comfortable adding beads to whatever I like now.
