9-14 This phrasing is counter-intuitive, especially for beginners.
12-14 Take left hands to facilitate crossing with precedence.
15-16 2s step up, 2M finishing by pulling left shoulder back to face out.
16-17 This transition is particularly awkward for 1M; the dance would flow much more satisfactorily if bars 1-8 and bars 9-16 were interchanged, finishing the rights and lefts with no polite turn and so leaving the Mn facing out ready for the ladies' chain.
-24 Mn finish with a quick polite turn; completion must not encroach onto the following bar.
See Kendall's Jig for a derivative more suitable for the inexperienced.
