KNITTING PARTY LUCET & WORLD KNIT IN PUBLIC DAY
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 1 Fun Pack 100% Acryic Yarn 250gm
- Wooden Lucet
- Crochet Hook-optional
- Scissors, wool needle
HOW TO USE THE LUCET
Holding the Lucet in one hand thread the yarn through the middle hole from the back and hold in position in the front with the left thumb. Bring the yarn at the back of the Lucet from the back right, around the right prong, through the middle, around the back of the left prong and back to the middle. Wrap the yarn around the right prong again from the middle, around the back completely around the right prong finishing at the back and secure with the left fingers. There will now be 2 wraps of yarn around the right prong and one around the left. Lift the lower thread on the right prong up and over the prong using the crochet hook if required, flip the Lucet one half turn to the left and adjust and tighten the knot to sit comfortably. Wrap the yarn around the right prong completely from the middle to the back, around the prong finishing at the back. Lift the lower thread on the right prong up and over the prong, flip the Lucet one half turn to the left and adjust and tighten the knot to sit comfortably. Continue until the work reaches the required length, cut the yarn, take the loops off the Lucet and thread the yarn through the loops and tighten.
Using double yarn throughout, make two lengths of cord in Orange and one length in Pink 45cm long. Sew the 3 lengths together with the wool needle and one of the yarn colours sew the pieces together as a flat braid (see photo). To make the bow, make two lengths of Pink and one length of Orange 24cm long, sew together then tie ends together creating a circle. Make one cord of Orange long enough to go around the bow twice, tie on then sew the bow to the side of the headband at a 45o angle. Plait the remaining ends together for the band as shown on photo.
Using double yarn make 8 lengths of 20cm in varying colours. Join the first length by knotting then weaving in the loose ends. Thread the second through the loop of the first and secure as first chain. Continue until all the lengths are used and close the circle by joining the last loop with the first and fasten off loose ends.
Using one yarn only, make 2 lengths of cord 50 cm long then fasten off. Thread through shoe eyelets, fasten off loose ends with the wool needle and tie.
