Tricotin

A few days ago I bought a tricotin in a Tiger store in Madrid (by the way, Tiger is highly recommended for shopping craft stuff http://www.tiger-stores.com). I was not sure how it worked, but lately I’ve been to trying it and I leave some pictures of how I made a wool string with it. What do you think about it? Not bad to be the first one, isn’t it?

The tricotin is an instrument created in 1920 to learn the basics of tricot and create cotton laces. Originally it consisted of a wooden cylinder with four studs, then with time it has been decorated in different ways according to the local customs of each area where it had been made. There are two tricotin types: manual and mechanic.

The manual tricotin is the best known, with a hole in the middle as I show in the pictures. The mechanic tricotin is a new generation tricotin, born in 1970 and as easy to use as the manual one, but much faster and more accurate. After placing the thread simply turn the crank to get a long cord in a few minutes.
