Using  Embellish-Knit ®: Follow manufacturer's instructions. 
Using double pointed needles: On a double pointed needle, cast on 4 sts; DO NOT TURN.  * Slide sts to the opposite end of the needle and knit them, pulling yarn firmly behind sts; repeat from * to desired length.  After a few rows, you will see that you are knitting a tiny tube; give it a gentle tug now and then to adjust any loose sts.  Bind off all sts, leaving a 12" tail for finishing.
