  • Think 'half, quarter, half, quarter' or 2-1-2-1. EN: 40
  • Swing Chain Thru can also be called from an Alamo Ring: start with the R-H (unless otherwise specified) alternating hands Cast Off 1/2, 1/4, 1/2, and 1/4. Ends in an Alamo Ring. This usage is rare, and somewhat controversial. It would be wise for the caller to specify the starting hand. EN: 50
