Latchet Lucet – Working with different thickness of yarns

People have been asking about working with both thin yarns, threads and cords as well as thicker yarns on the Latchet Lucet.

This video shows the stitch wiggle trick that draws up the excess thread when working with fine cords, threads or yarns. As for thicker yarns, no problem- working with roving yarns makes very effective lucet cords.

Lucets are not like crochet hooks or knitting needles that have to be specific to the yarn.

You can work with a huge range of yarn thicknesses, types and weights of yarn on lucets. The one trick to be aware of with the Latchet Lucet is to keep the yarn that goes across the latchets at a very light tension, and then tighten the stitches up AFTER they are formed.
