Make cord with your homespun yarn using a Lucet.                   
673

A Lucet (also called a lucet fork) is an ancient tool dating back to the Viking era. It is used for making a looped cord that is strong, square, and a bit springy. Lucet cord can be used for draw-string (such as for bags or purses), decorative edging, ties for hats, and any other use where strong cord is needed.

A Lucet cord and a knitted I-cord look very similar and can be used interchangeably. The advantage of a Lucet cord is that it works up more quickly. All Lucets come with a sample cord and instructions.

Handcarved Cherry Lucet (above) $87
