Notes:

  • The 1/4 In is toward the Center of the 4-dancer formation.
  • If {n} is not given, the default is 4 as in a normal Square Thru.
  • Do not 1/4 In after the last hand.
  • When starting from a rectangular T-Bone setup in which some dancers are facing and some dancers are in a R-H Mini-Wave, only the Facing dancers start the call, even though technically the dancers in the R-H Mini-Wave could also do a Right Pull By!
  • Sometimes a caller will call Funny Square Thru {n} when it is not possible for anyone to Pull By on the n-th hand. Those doing the Pull By on n-1 still 1/4 In.

Variation: Funny Square Thru {n} & 1/2: Dancers doing the final Pull By stop in a Mini-Wave. This is the same as Funny Square Thru {n + 1} To A Wave.
