One Handed Rock the Baby
Throw a sleeper. Make your hand into a triangle shape. Then wrap your hand up in string. If your hand is large enough you will be able to rock the yoyo in it.
Throw a sleeper. Put the backs of your left thumb and index finger against the string, make sure your palm is facing you. With your right hand hook the string below your left hand with your right index finger. Twist your left hand to make a loop. Reach your left thumb and index finger through the loop. Pinch the string with both fingers. Pull your left thumb, index finger, and the string through the loop thats on your left hand. Let the loop slide off onto the strings. You should now have an Effiel Tower over your index finger. Twist your left hand and repeat those steps with your right ring finger, right thumb, and right pinky. Pull the last loop into the cradle and rock the yoyo. After you have rocked the yoyo a satisfactory amount of times drop the strings and return the yoyo to your hand.
In the Bucket
Throw a sleeper. With your left thumb and index finger create a "V" shape. Hold this "V" in front of you, be sure that your palm is facing you. Put the "V" against the back of the string, by doign this the yoyo string goes from the yoyo through the "V" to your right finger. Take your right hand and wrap the strign around the outside of your left thumb, across the "V", then around the outside of your left index finger. Hold the string nice and tight, so it doesnt slip in between your left index and middle fingers.Take your right index finger and hook it under the string that goes across the "V" from the yoyo. Pull the string through the "V", if you didi this right your yoyo should now be dangling on baout 2 inches of string. Flip the yoyo up into the center string going across the "V", let it spin awhile then flip it off and return the yoyo to your hand. If you miss to the left side you get a knot, if you miss to the right side you don't.
Rock the Baby
Throw a sleeper. With all of your fingers on your left hand grab the string about halfway down. With your right hand pinch string halfway in between the yoyo and your left hand. Reach your right hand under the yoyo so it forms a cradle. Rock the yoyo back and forth a few times. When the yoyo starts running out of spin drop all the string and the yoyo will return to your hand.
Rock the Baby and Throw it Out of its Cradle
Make a cradle like in Rock the Baby. Rock the yoyo back and forth a few times. On your last decided rock as the yoyo is coming towards you swing the yoyo over the top of the cradle. Drop all the strings and the yoyo will return to your hand.
