How to Lucet
According to Wikipedia, the lucet can be traced back to the time of the Vikings. It is a two-pronged tool used for making cord. It resembles an i-cord, or a spool-knitted cord but unlike those uses only two stitches, or two prongs. Again, there’s very little speech in this video but I think you’ll catch on quickly.
Incidentally, I’ve been asked numerous times where I got my lucets. I’m very lucky in that I know people who have woodworking as a hobby. I have three lucets; two were made by a co-worker and one was made by my sister. I know that there are online suppliers and a Google search will bring them up.
Another thing… this is the very basic technique. I understand that there are other lucet techniques but I’m not familiar with them. If I learn any more about the lucet, I’ll update this page. The basic technique is what I wanted to convey and I think I’ve done that.
