The Lucet quick grab technique makes the braiding of cord fast and easy, no switching hands, no crochet hooks. Here I braided red embroidery floss to create a cord upon which to suspend my threading hook for my spinning wheel.

The “How To” is better seen than heard, or read. A little clumsy but you’ll get the idea watching the video. The right hand finger wrap is important. The wrap around the little finger creates the tension. Also note that the pointer finger dives under the active cord to capture the loop and draw it over the active cord. Also note that while the loop is snugged up it isn’t tightly snugged down on the the lucet when turned. That bit of slack makes the process easier.
