A knitting fork, also called a lucet, is a traditional wooden tool dating back to medieval times for making strong cords with a series of loops that are knotted together and was most likely introduced by the Vikings.
This 6.5" lucet is made of a hardwood called Birch wood from a locally owned forest in Estonia and hand-crafted in Germany. The lucet creates a very sturdy, square cord, which is quite elastic and will not fully unravel when a thread snaps. This means it is a good choice for clothing attachments, zipper pulls, to hang items from, to wear as bracelets, as hair ties, as backpack attachments, sewn into various objects and more.
It's a great way to introduce children to knitting while strengthening their fine motor skills and finger dexterity. Children love watching their knitted yarn grow longer and longer and will excitedly show others their progress and continue day after to day to work on their piece.
Please choose with or without yarn. With yarn includes a 6 foot strand of wool, silk, cotton or blend of wool/silk yarn for practice of colors we have on hand.
If you would rather have more yarn or choose your colors, we have some nice wool yarn for finger knitting here:
