Notes:
• Historically, callers have called Interlocked Little from Twin Diamonds, in which case the Outsides were expected to 'go As You Are' (i.e., omit the 1/4 Right). This usage is typically frowned upon today. It is our opinion that the caller should explicitly state something like 'Outsides go As You Are' or 'Centers Start A' so that the outsides do not start with a 1/4 Right.
• To smoothly dance the Center's part, the Very Centers should wait (before doing their 1/2 Press Ahead) until the Ends have almost completed the Cross Fold.

Interlocked Scoot & Little [C3A]: From a 1/4 Line. Interlocked Scoot Back; Outsides 1/4 to the handhold and Counter Rotate 1/4 as Centers Step & Cross Fold. Ends in Parallel Two-Faced Lines.
