I strung the beads onto the wire before beginning to knit. There were 7 stitches and two beads in each row.
Step 2: A close-up of the beginning
This is a close up of the first few rows of my napkin ring.
Step 3: Beginning to put it together
After the knitting is finished, I sewed the short ends together so no stitches fell out.
Step 4: Making the knit tube
After the short ends are sewed together with wire, I use a long length of wire to sew the long ends together to form the tube. You can see the difference between the finished product (on the right) and the band (on the left).
Step 5: One set of finished napkin rings
This is one of the three sets of finished products.
