November Workshop: Lucet Braiding

At the November 3rd meeting, the Yarn Club will welcome member Roxann Blazetich-Ozols who will lead us in a workshop to learn lucet braiding.  The lucet is an ancient braiding tool dating back to Viking times, and we’re so fortunate to have an expert in this unusual technique right on hand.  The workshop will teach participants the techniques required to produce a custom shawl fastener.  Take a look at the beautiful examples Roxann has worked up:

3-different-shawl-buttons

The buttons can be inserted through the eyelets or lace openings of shawls to hold them together in an attractive drape around your shoulders.

Participants should bring:

  • The shawl they would like to create a fastener for (if applicable) and any leftover or coordinating yarn
  • 1 short knitting needle
  • 2 buttons
  • measuring tape
  • scissors
  • own lucet if available, but practice lucets will be on hand for all participants
