how to make a knitted tube?
Hello all, I have a question-is it possible to make a knitted tube that is open on both ends? I wear headphones when I'm drifting off to sleep at night (listening to relaxation cd's, I love them!) and I want to knit long, skinny tubes to slide over the headphone cords...to help keep them from kinking up and just make them more comfy.
Thank you.

Sure. You can either knit a long flat piece and seam it or you can knit in the round and make a tube. It should be very simple.

If they're really thin, it'd be easier to make an I cord than seam up a flat piece.

Jan-That's very helpful, and so simple! It seems so much can be done with DPN'S. I'll try it both ways with dpn's and seaming.

fatoldlady-Wonderful, just what I need. I can't believe that there's a pattern even for this! It never ceases to amaze me that even the most obscure items have patterns designed just for them.

suzeeq- I'll certainly experiment with the i-cord, too. I've read about all sorts of ways that i-cord can be used, from bracelets to handles to design onto the item itself. I'll experiment with that as well.

This is why I feel so blessed to be a part of this forum, not just for help with the basics but also for the encouragement. Thanks much.
