At the 2014 Knit and Crochet Show there was a class on using the Lucet – a tool that predates crochet, used to make cord that’s perfect for embellishments. If you’d like to try a new way to use yarn, the Lucet is a fun way to do it – and great for drawstrings for your crochet items!

Lucets are great tools and are easy to learn to use. Give it a try! Children seem to pick it up instinctively and make miles of cords. Girls love making scarves, purses, stuff for their dolls – rugs, clothes, accessories, etc. and boys love making things too. You can use one strand of yarn or several at a time and get so many different looks. It’s meditative….lulling you while you are watching TV or riding in a car. Very addictive!!
