So what is a lucet fork? A lucet fork is also known as a knitting fork and is a tool used in cord making and braiding. The lucet fork has been used for generations dating back to Viking and Medieval periods.
The lucet cord is created by making loop-like knots that won’t unravel when cut. It’s an easy and quick way to knit a cord that can be used for many purposes.
Use various materials to knit a cord. I used Brava bulky weight and Wool of the Andes worsted yarn to make cords of various thicknesses. Purchase yarn from WeCrochet. It makes a beautiful even knit cord.

Insert yarn through the hole front to back. Make a figure eight around forks twice. Pull the first loop over the top loop of the fork on the left and right. Make another figure eight so that there are 2 loops on the fork again. Repeat pulling the first loop over the top loop. Give the tail a tug that’s pulling through the hole as you go. Continue making the cord as long as you want.
