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.


Twelfth: Now complete the "Crab," beginning with the Eighth movement and going through to the very end (Fig. 866).

Fig. 866

To put an additional ring around the index loop, repeat this figure, from the Eleventh movement to the end. This may be done any number of times.
