How To Make The String Figure Nine Eyes

1. Start by facing the palms of your hands together with your fingers pointing up. Now loop the string around both the left and right thumbs and extend by stretching your hands out so that the string is tight.

2. With the little finger of your right hand pick up the far right thumb string. Do the same with the little finger of your left hand and extend.

3. Put loops on each thumb and little finger by taking a turn around each little finger with far little finger string and a turn around each thumb with near thumb string.
