This start is horizontal (because of the gimps), so two pairs starts at each pin, and one at the edge.

This pattern uses gimps to show the paths of the maze. This needs a lot of gimps! There is also a lot of starting and finishing gimps. Click here for a description of gimps, including starting and finishing. The diagram below shows where the gimps have to start and finish. Most of the gimps can be hung as pairs. One gimp at the start is alone, and so must be hung using a skip knot.
