  1. All four couples set twice and cross to partner's place.

  2. First couple, followed by the other 3 couples, lead down the middle for 4 steps and cast back to place.

  3. First couple cross over RH and cast to the bottom of the set on the opposite side. The other three couples join hands and move up. First couple turn with the RH one and a half times to finish on their own side in 4th place. [seems to be incomplete]

Originally, the last 4 bars were a half figure of eight, but by 2004 this had been changed to turn right once and a half
