FREE TUTORIAL for Crocheted LUCET-CORD

TUTORIAL for crocheted LUCET-CORD
UPDATED - APRIL-2014
This is an old technique, maybe as far back as to the Vikings!
The Lucet, also called Knitting-Fork, or Chain-Fork, produce a strong, non-stretching braid, worked using the fingers (More info; Search Lucet in your browser). All kind of materials can be used, thin and thick!
The best is; The cord comes out squared, with lots of stitch-loops to insert the hook in! Perfect for my Cord-Soles!
Making heavy cord with twine and Lucet, is a finger-killing task!
So I found a way to crochet the cord instead, saving the fingers for a lot of pain!

This method is updated: Credit to my left-handed customer, Anne Chubbuck from New York.
She told me she worked the tutorial backwards!
Thanks Anne! Find her here: http://www.ravelry.com/people/sophienne.

Her method is faster, easier, and very logical!
Gives a cord with good tension.

The Lucet method has become my favorite for cord-soles. I attach out-soles to all my crochet slippers, in order to turn them into street-shoes!
