WWW Collection of Favorite String Figures

Making string figures is a pastime that people throughout the world have enjoyed for untold thousands of years. String figures, games, and tricks are an important part of many cultures. They represent people, animals, places, and things of importance. String figures may have ritual, aesthetic, mythological, or religious significance—or, like Cat's Cradle, just be fun to make! Long before TV or books, people were using string figures to illustrate the stories they told around the campfire.
