Memage Letters

This is how we form letters in the Memage. 

Each letter always starts behind the middle cone in the bottom row. 

You form the letter by tracing the outer edge in an anticlockwise direction via the notional black lines only and passing as close as possible to the cones without touching them. 

The first time you trace a black line, walk forwards. The second time you trace the same black line, walk backwards. 

Always start your journey by going right of the first cone.

You will need to remember these formations for Pegularity 5. Note that M, N, V and Z are the only half height letters.
Most letters, like U, require a complete forwards and backwards journey:

1) Walk forwards (green) on the right hand side.

2) Backtrack backwards (red).

3) Walk forwards (green) for the inside of the U.

4) Backtrack backwards (red) to the start.

The full list of letters like this are: C, E, F, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, S. T, U, V, W, Y and Z.

Some letters require different combinations of reverse and forwards. For example, to trace the letter A, you need four sections:

1) Trace the outside past 6 cones walking forwards (green).

2) You have to backtrack to the middle bar by walking backwards (red).

3) Walk forwards for the middle bar.

4) Walk backwards to the start.

Other letters requiring combinations of forward and reverse are: G, P, Q, R. are: C, E, F, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, S. T, U, V, W, Y and Z.

Only three letters require a simple forward motion. Heres D. 

The others are B and O.
