Magic Loop knitting http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques
Judy’s magic cast-on

Using Magic Loop and Judy’s Magic Cast-On means this pencil case is completely seamless. However, for those with a strong preference for DPNs, you can find an outline for using these instead at the end of the pattern. It does require grafting!

Update: for those who prefer a video, I have now found a Cat Bordhi video in which she shows how to do Judy’s Magic Cast-On.
