Lucet is an ancient cording tool perfect for knitters, crocheters and all fiber artists. The most comprehensive guide to this ancient tool yet published is by my dear friend and colleague Jennifer Hansen of Stitch Diva Studios. Jennifer and I met over 10 years ago at an industry trade show and have been friends and collaborative colleagues ever since. Over the years we have shared business tips, industry resources and empowered and encouraged each other to flourish in the same industry. How beautiful is that? She is a very special person to me. We also open our homes to each other during hurricane season, since we live on opposite sides of Florida.
Lucet is an ancient Viking cording tool that makes strong and very sturdy cords that you can use in many different ways: drawstrings, lacings, buttons, embellishments, jewelry, rugs and so much more. In this 86 page book, author Jennifer Hansen teaches you 6 fundamental cord types and give you full instructions for 8 fun, easy and useful lucet projects.
I love this technique. It is portable, and you can make anything from functioning tools to decorative jewelry. What is not to love?

Just learned to use a lucet but I have never done anything with beads. This looks like a great book!
I’ve seen this in action on TV but not in real life. I think this would be so much fun and the possibilities would be endless! Love it!
I have a lucet I bought at a Renaissance Festival, but have no idea on how to use it. I think my teenage girls would love to do this to make bracelets.

Hi. As much I enjoy knitting and crochet, working with chord doing macramé or gimp is a beautiful change of pace. I would love an opportunity to introduce the lucet to our Knot just Knitting Group on two Saturdays a month.
I’d love to learn this! I saw it on one of the history channels one day! Arrrr Vikings–I’ve got to learn this!
I would live to try this!! What a lovely opportunity!!
I’d love to learn to lucet! I don’t know anyone who knows how to use one and I have a large stash of fibers that I need to dig into any way that I can.
Jennifer Hansen is the reason I crochet. Her designs are modern and her tutorials are the best. I learned from her tutorials.
Nice…I would love to make bracelets with it 🙂
Thankyou for bringing this beautiful artwork back to life.
It will be challenging yet exciting to learn, I learned how to crochet with Kristin, would enjoy learning how to Lucet with Jennifer!
Thankyou for bring this to us.
I would love to win this:)
I somehow managed to acquire a lucet, but don’t know how to use it, so the book would be awesome!
I love learning a new craft and this one has a great look to it. I love the idea of bringing this old craft back to life too. Thank you for this chance to win this great book and Lucet.
Just came across a picture of a lucet on a crochet site, always looking for something new to do, would love to try this.
