    Love this crab! I tried making it using the diagram provided, but it doesn’t say how long the string needs to be. Would you please let me know so I can finish mine? Thanks!

      Hey, thanks! You will need two lengths of string about 30″ each. Thread one piece of string through the “Jaw” piece so you have an equal amount on either side. Then after the ends of the string are threaded through the holes in the back of the claw they come together and follow the same path from there on. Hope that is clear! Please let me know if you need more info.
