Lucet History

Lucet Class Video

Video: Cord Making with a Lucet w/ Debbie Coyle (YouTube) — My beginning lucet class on how to make a 1 thread, a 2 thread (@44 minutes), and a 3 or 4 thread cord (@55 minutes) on the lucet.

Students should have: A lucet or two pronged fork, and Rat tail cord or size 3 or 5 crochet cotton. How to prep for the online class

Lucet Cordmaking Methods

One thread method
A Two thread method -- A method that makes two color cord, cord with a slit down the middle, cord with picots.

A Three (or four) thread method -- Adds a third (and forth) cord to the two cord method. This allows you to add accents down the center of the cord ... including beads and other fun stuff!

Double Lucets

People have asked about how to use the double lucet and I promised to get more info. I found two videos that show the two methods I know about:
