Lucet Braiding - Renaissance Faire

During a Renaissance Festival that I attended, Celeste Colbourne of Spinsters Loft, gave a demonstration of using a Lucet to make braiding. The Lucet creates a flat braid that can be used to embellish the edges of a handwoven article.

  • Begin by threading the yarn through the hole in the bottom of the Lucet
  • Make a figure 8 loop around the 2 prongs of the lucet
  • loop the yarn a second time around the right prong and turn the lucet around

  • Lift the bottom loop over the top loop
  • Slip the looped yarn over the prong
  • Give a tug on the bottom of the yarn to tighten the knot into place

  • Wrap the yarn around the other side of the lucet prong
  • Lift the bottom loop over the top loop and over the prong
  • Give a tug on the bottom yarn to pull the yarn into place
  • Repeat this procedure until the cord is of sufficient length
