What is that I hear you say and that is exactly what I said.

Well I will tell you. It is a Lucet.

None the wiser well neither was I.

I discovered that a Lucet is a medieval weaving gadget. Also known as a Lyre, a Lutal and a Chain Fork.

It has been used for thousands of years making ties in medieval times, bodice laces for the Elizabethans, ornamental frogging in the 18th Century and silk watch fobs for the Victorians..
In modern times it would be boot and shoe laces.
You can produce a square cord from almost any material and any size.

So I went onto You Tube to find out how to use it.
I look forward to giving it a go and making use of it in my craft.
