Lucet - Dayton History Museum Store
The lucet is used to make a square braid much like that of the spool knitter. Yarn or pearl cotton is the choice for beginners but silk thread or floss is sometimes preferred by advanced workers. Once the basic technique is learned, intricate patterns with two or three different colored threads and twisted stitches can be employed. The possibilities are endless. The end product can be used for drawstring bags, decorative cording on jackets, button loops, lacing for clothing, or anything one can imagine!
