Lucet Braiding

Over the centuries braiding with a lucet has been learned one-on-one. It took a teacher and a student, or perhaps a few students, working together to pass on information. Now that the Internet has come along, there are more resources for learning available.

 

Knitting, crochet, and kumihimo braiding have all had a way to document how a project was made. This allows people on different sides of the world to duplicate projects with those techniques. A lucet braider (or luceteer) has not had that option.

 

I have developed a way of communicating and documenting lucet braiding projects. I will be releasing stitch documentation as I am able, starting with how to begin the braid, how to plait a plain braid, and how to end the braid.

Here are files that convert English measurement reeds to Metric, as well as how to adjust the sley to obtain different setts.
