In this class we'll play with:

Making two color lucet cord, add picots and slits to the cord;
Then add a 3rd and 4th cord;
Finally, we'll take a detour into the world of four pronged lucets / knitting spools / knitting dolly

Class Description

Description: Lucets are totally portable and fun to use! Lucet made cord is an alternative to kumihimo, cord and crochet chains. The cord can be make from any yarn and can be used for award cord, drawstrings, trim, frogs, shoelaces, and any other cord uses.

Class will cover how to start, work, and finish a 2 color (double thread) lucet cord that allows for two color cords, button holes, and other fun stuff.

Skill Level: The classes are suitable for all students from Beginner to Advanced. No experience at anything is necessary. The class is perfect for a beginner, but will also include techniques that should interest intermediate and advanced lucet users.

Class Schedule

2 color lucet

Class 1, May 10th

We'll make two thread lucet cords. Making two color cord in a manner that allows us to add picots and center slits.

I find this method easier to work than the standard single cord lucet method.

4 color lucet

We'll add one and then two gimp cords down the outside center of the cord, a method that allows for adding beads and other decorations as you work the braid.

Lucet History

The lucet is a historically accurate tool for making cord. The method I'll be teaching may or may not be historically accurate ..... while the lucets have survived the cord has not. More info on lucet history

Lucet Cordmaking Methods

The 2 thread (and related 3 and 4 thread) method of making lucet cord is my favorite method and I find it easier for beginners to work than than standard 1 thread method. More info on lucet cord methods
