Cross The "K" [C2]
 
 
From Facing Lines, Eight Chain Thru, or other applicable formations.

  1. Cross Trail Thru;
  2. Centers Trade as Ends U-Turn Back by turning away from the Center (i.e., 1/4 Out & Roll).

Facing Lines end in Facing Lines; Eight Chain Thru ends in Eight Chain Thru.

Cross The "K" is a 2-part call.

Notes:
  • Remember that Cross Trail Thru [A1] is a Pass Thru and Half Sashay. You end back-to-back without changing your facing direction.
  • If you become an End, be sure to U-Turn Back by turning away from the Center. The caller could add a Roll (in which case the Ends finish facing in after the Roll).
