Instruction reminder:

Slentre Instructions

Start with 3 loops (marked x below) on each hand (A = index finger)

D C B A     A B C D
. x x x     . x x x
  1. operator (right A) goes over left A, under left B, insert into left C (from above) and drag back to take up position right A
    D C B A     A B C D
    . . x x     x x x x
    
  2. shift left loops by 1 to left to free operator (left A)
    D C B A     A B C D
    . x x .     x x x x
    
  3. operator (left A) goes over right A, under right B, over right C and insert (from above) into right D and drag back to take up position left A
    D C B A     A B C D
    . x x x     x x x .
    
  4. shift right loops by 1 to right to free operator (right A)
    D C B A     A B C D
    . x x x     . x x x
    
  5. repeat steps 1-4

Ignoring turns the mathematical description (the braid word) of the moves used in the planner to create this braid is aBeDc

Start with 3 loops on left hand and 3 loops on right hand.
