Crocheting with beads

This is the method I use for adding bead eyes to my amigurumi, I use a 0.6mm crochet hook but there is an alternative method using dental floss or (as I used) thick nylon thread. I prefer this method as it gives two strands of yarn to secure the bead.

 

With bead on hook hook the loop
