Knitting Fork with Rainbow Yarn
- In stock, ready to ship
Our durable wooden Knitting Fork (also known as a lucet) is an easy way to introduce children to the art of knitting.
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 no handy metal clasps or snaps.
The lucet was widely used until machine-made cords came along in the 19th century.
This set includes plant-dyed 100% organic wool Rainbow Yarn for your first project!
Simple hand and finger movements create a loose, springy chain that can be used as a cord, in garlands, or sewn into a variety of shapes.
Children will watch with eager fascination as the strand of knitted yarn grows longer and longer as their busy hands work!
A terrific exercise for building fine motor skills.
