When you spin the poi at your sides, one going forward and the other backwards, you are actually doing half of each a butterfly and a reverse butterfly at either side of you body. Thus turning 90 degrees to either side will enter one of these moves, enabling smooth transitions from weave style moves to butterfly type moves without wrapping. Just thought you might like to know
