Doing some Medieval research this morning I cam across a Lucet tool...further research it all became clear, Lucet cords were the product of this tool and you can make a crochet version too.

Just had to have a go with what was to hand....a simple and easy to make crochet cord if you don't have a Lucet tool.

Lots of uses were suggested for this sightly stretchy cord...fine for shoe laces, up to thicker cords for bag handles...sounds like an interesting project for the future

Couple of good You Tube videos worth a watch..

The lucet is an old technique, dating as far back as the Vikings perhaps. It's a simple technique for making cord. This video does not go into a lot of verbal detail ...
