We have a local here who makes lucets out of Number 8 fencing wire --
nice and springy which apparently makes it easier for beginners....

Saw it here:
There was another instructable for a 16-slot cord. Both look a little
simpler than the examples provided by Cat, but I figure are simply
variations on a the kimihimo theme.
So apart from Japanese and Norse variants, was anything like this used in
say mid-1500s England/Scotland or early 1500s northern Italy?
I'd like to learn a cord-making art, but would prefer that it be
something suitable for my persona. Maybe I'll just have to have another
go with that lucet thing....
