I have one that works great as long as you're using worsted or thinner yarn that isn't too fuzzy. It's the "embellish-knit" or something at Jo-ann. I love it and am really annoyed that I lost it.

I bought a lucet and Have used it for dozens of longies cords. It's kind of between a braided and icord style. I like it best of all the options. Etsy sells them and there are videos on YouTube.

I also use the embellish-knit and love it. It definitely works best with a thin worsted. A thicker worsted can cause it to skip a stitch every once in a while.
