STRING FIGURES

THE SQUARE

First, Second, and Third: The same as the first three movements of the "Apache Door."

Fourth: The same as the Fifth movement of the "Apache Door."

Fifth: Opening A, taking up the single lower palmar string only.

Sixth: Pick up from below on the back of each thumb the near index string,

return the thumb to its position and slip the two lower thumb loops over the upper loop (the one you have just taken on the thumb) and entirely off the thumb.

Seventh: Pick up from below on the back of each Little finger the far index string, return the little finger to its position, and slip the two lower little finger loops

over the upper loop (the one you have just taken on the little finger) and entirely off the little finger.

Eighth: Insert each thumb and little finger from below into the index loop of the same hand, withdraw the index, separate widely the thumbs and little fingers, and draw the strings tight (Fig. 863).
