3 - 3 - 3 - 3 + (join to the next picot)
3 - 3 - 3 + (join to the next picot)
4 + (join to the middle of the body)

THE INSTRUCTIONS THEN STATE JOIN TO THE MIDDLE PICOT ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE BODY AND REPEAT IN REVERSE ORDER FOR OTHER SIDE. I HAD REAL DIFFICULTY IN JOINING TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE BODY. THIS IS LEAVING A STRING IN THE BACK THAT IS AWKWARD LOOKING, TOO.
