Description
The art of creating figures from pieces of string is an ancient and rewarding diversion that has entertained practitioners for centuries. Popular today with a wide range of hobbyists, string figure models vary from simple constructions easy enough for children to sophisticated, elaborate figures that challenge even the most experienced enthusiast.This easy-to-follow guide, complied from the pages of String Figure Magazine, contains clearly detailed diagrams and simple instructions for making 23 different and delightful string figures, among them a turtle, an elegantly symmetrical cobweb, a miniaturized hammock, a polar bear, a little girl with pigtails, a graceful swan, seven diamonds all in a row. And 16 other intriguing designs. All you need to make even the most difficult figure is a length of ordinary string that can easily be knotted.An ideal way to help develop a youngster's interest, attention span, and manual dexterity, this book also offers older hobbyists hours of challenging fun as they learn new twists to an age-old pastime.
