Special Instructions: Carefully follow the string path on this design. Begin by lacing 3 beads onto one strand to make a "spike" and repeat on other side. Then add on the first row of 4 beads in the usual manner. Add a bead (one on each side). The next row consists of 6 beads and then add a bead onto each side. Go on to the next row, then make the arms. To make the claws, lace on 11 beads. Go back through beads marked 9 & 10, then through beads 7 & 8. Go through bead 4 and add on bead 12. Then go through beads 3, 4, 5 & 6 and 1 & 2. Go back through the arm then make the next row. Now make the first set of legs (the long ones), ending up going through the first bead of the previous row. Make the other set of legs (the short ones). Add the last row of 4 beads in the usual manner and knot.
