-0 Make the set a neat circle: 1M at 1 o'clock, 2L at 3 o'clock, 2M at 5 o'clock, 3L at 7 o'clock, 3M at 9 o'clock, 1L at 11 o'clock.
-8 1s finish back in places; all face partners.
9-16 Always pass the same dancer in the same way in the interlocking reels.
-12 Acknowledge your partner before turning away.
25-26 1s 2s 3s set as separate couples.
27-32 In these instructions, the hands round are one place only around the set, leading to 312 as the equally acceptable progression; the original version requires hands round halfway which is less elegant (cf. The Duchess Tree, bars 11-16).
29-30 All should be back in original places while turning.
-32 Finish in a neat circle.
