STRING FIGURES

VARIATION OF THE CRAB

First, Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth: The same as the first five movements of the "Scarab."

Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth: The same as the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth movements of the "Crab." Push the loop which passes

around the vertical string running from the index to the little finger, well up, away from the little finger loops.

Eleventh: Keep the index loop well up on the tip of the finger, and pass each

thumb away from you, and, picking up on the back of the thumb, draw toward you the lower diagonal string of the loop passing around the vertical string which runs from the index to the little finger.
