DIY Lucet Knit Trivets
Lean into that Scandi-style by using a Viking-days tool to make a modern-looking lucet knit trivet as a gift or for your home. Here’s how!
Lucet (aka knitting fork)
Approx 45′, ¼” Cotton Rope
Sharp Tapestry Needle
OPTIONAL: Vegan Leather Decorative Tab and either Rivet or Sewing Supplies
Approx. 6 ½” Circle
Use Method #2 in this video to knit the cord for this project.
- Leaving an 8″/20 cm tail and using the lucet and rope, knit a 65″/165 cm cord. Fasten off.
- Beginning from center-out, roll cord into a spiral formation.
- Using needle and string, whip stitch spiral layers together to tail; fold over tail to create loop, whip stitch around to secure. Tie off, weave in ends and trim.
- OPTIONAL: Fold vinyl tab around bottom of loop. Machine, or hand-sew, or use a rivet to shut.
