Straw poll.

Clockwise or anticlockwise?

Clockwise. I'm left-handed and wonder if that's anything to do with it?

However I draw a 6 starting at the middle, whereas most people start at the top!

Anticlockwise from the top, then clockwise round the lower loop

Start in middle
Do top loop clockwise (left and up)
Return to middle
Do bottom loop anticlockwise (left and down)
End in middle

If you start at the top or bottom you'll have raggedy ends.

clockwise - right handed

NotCornflakes Tue 19-Sep-17 20:43:47

Clockwise. I'm left handed too.

Trills Tue 19-Sep-17 20:44:04

What do you even mean about drawing an 8 clockwise? Are you going clockwise round BOTH loops?

juliasalinger Tue 19-Sep-17 20:50:47

Start at top, anti-clockwise half of top then full clockwise bottom then complete top anti-clockwise. Like, well... a 'figure of eight'. Am a little startled there are other ways shock

Interesting. userofthiswebsite explains it best what I mean.

TeenTimesTwo Tue 19-Sep-17 20:53:16

start at the top, draw and S and then complete it.

SingaSong12 Tue 19-Sep-17 21:00:13

Anti-clockwise (s then complete). I'm left handed

Waddlelikeapenguin Tue 19-Sep-17 21:03:38

S then complete.
There are other ways?!shock

Oblomov17 Tue 19-Sep-17 21:07:16

S and complete.

DaisysStew Tue 19-Sep-17 21:07:45

S then complete (so anti-clockwise?) I'm a lefty.
