Ends in Parallel Waves. There is no default fraction for this call. Cast & Relay is a Relay The Top with both the initial Arm Turn and the Star turning the given fraction.

{i - j - k - l} Relay The Top [C4]: From Parallel Waves or Eight Chain Thru. Arm Turn i/4; Centers Arm Turn j/4 as Ends 1/2 Circulate; Center Star (Diamond) Circulate k spots as Others Trade; those who meet Cast Off l/4 as Others move up to the end in Parallel Waves or Facing Twin Diamonds.
