After you measure and cut the length of tubing you determine is right for your project....

Use a knobby knitter and the pick, knit 4 rounds, insert a piece of clear plastic tubing, or cotton cord in the center.  Using the yarn tail that dangles from the bottom of the knobby knitter tube, pull down gently after every 2 or 3 rounds to progress the work. Keep knitting rounds until you come to the end of the tubing.  Do 5 more rounds, and bind off by picking up the loops one by one. 

Attach to your bag or purse.

That's a great tip for doing purse knit purse handles!  I assume you could also hand knit an icord and stick the tube in that way?

Wow - this is a really clever idea. I saw the tube knitters at the craft store and was thinking bunting? very skinny snakes? But your solution is the best! And know I know what they are for  Cheesy

Thank you  striker923 and  lightninglisa  :-)

striker923,
I've never tried to knit the I-cord first to tell ya the truth.  But I have tried to adjust the ends afterwards, and the circular knitting kinda grabs the tubing, and won't budge.  But now, I'm curious so I will have to try it, lol

Yea, I was just curious because I don't really have one of those cool loom thingies (and also don't mind hand knitting icord...makes for some great TV knitting!)

Here's a link that tells how to make one, :-)

Personally, I would use a drill bit and make the center hole a little bigger.

Best offer I've had all day, thanks Smiley   Hand knitting it would work too, I just have a love for gadgets, can't help it.
