How to make an i-cord (tube) (knitting)

While I did try a crocheted i-cord technique, it just is simpler with knitting, with the easier option of sliding your stitches along a double pointed needle (or using a circular).  It was what I used for the 'stem' on the Pink Hat and you may find it handy if you need a yarn 'tube'.
