Seamless iPod Stocking

Nothing coomplicated here, but people who see these think they probably need one. Something about the cuteness factor.

Size 3 double point needles
Small amount of self-striping light weight sock yarn

Cast on 36 stitches, divide onto DP needles and join.
Work 10 rows in 2 X 2 ribbing

Switch to stockinette stitch (knit every round) and work until piece measures 4 inches from beginning. On last round, place one marker at beginning of round and another marker after 18th stitch, complete round.

Dec round 1: **(slip marker, K1, K2tog, K12, K2tog, K1)**, repeat once, 32 stitches
Knit one round even
Dec round 2: **(slip marker, K1, K2tog, K10, K2tog, K1)**, repeat once, 28 stitches
Knit one round even

Divide remaining stitches evenly onto 2 needles and graft the "toe" together using Kitchener Stitch.

Weave in yarn ends.
