Crocheting a new rag rug

Traditional tools

Brunswick, Victoria

Found my Lucet – lucky the instructions were still with it! A lot of practice required to speed up the process. Not sure why I started with such difficult yarn to keep even but loving the colour combination. 💕💕 #traditionalcraft #lucet #cord #snodgaffel #chainfork #lutal #lyre #medievalcraft #viking #cording #newyearcraft #craft #handmade #making #textiles
