how-to for i-cord pretzel

get yourself some chocolate-colored yarn, or pretzel colored, if you don't care to have it be a chocolate covered pretzel, and a couple size 6 dbl point knitting needles

cast on 4 stitches
knit in i-cord (slide the stitches down to the other end of the needle and knit without turning, continue) for about 6 inches or so
finish off
form into pretzel shape "knot" and tack in place where it crosses

if not chocolate covered, you could sew on tiny beads for salt (or just spritz with a spray glue and add some glitter - but that will come off if/when you wash it)

use bulky yarn and bigger needles for a big fat soft pretzel

kind of a no-brainer
