More About This Product

Lucet knitting is a traditional craft that dates back to medieval times.

The lucet, a lyre-shaped handtool, was employed to create sturdy cords that were used for attachments in clothing or to hang items from a belt, since, back then, there were were no handy metal clasps or snaps.

The lucet was widely used until machine-made cords came along in the 19th century.
