New Member Questions

After a few false starts, I'm finally moving along. This shawl has kicked my knitter's butt repeatedly, let me tell you.
Anyways, I'm on chart b. I purchased beads yesterday and plan on doing them, but I'm wondering where they should be placed- either at the nupp or at the p5tog.
Any help?
I use the crochet hook method, so I think the bead automatically drops down to the row below. I think it should go where the p5 tog is. Suggestions?
Also, I should omit the P5tog, correct?
FYI, I'm doing the shawl in Zephyr, colorway is bottle green. Lovely yarn.
Thanks for the help.

Yes, you will omit the p5tog. Where is says to do the nupps is where you will do the bead instead, that's what I did.

Yeah, what she said. I did the crochet hook method too, so when I got to the nupp, I placed the bead, and then just knit the stitch. Can't wait to see it finished!

I placed the beads on the RS, instead of working the nupp.
