Posted:Spin you left poi forward and your right in reverse. Then cross you left hand under your right then bring the right over too your left side. Bring you left hand over your right and back over to your right side. I think that's how I do mine. Sorry for the bad discription.

Posted:learn to do TTN forwards and backwards in the side planes, then doing TTN on your left hand side when the right hand comes back towards your body take it right across to the right hand side, and follow it with the left 1/2beat later when it comes around, then do the same on your right hand side (take left across when it comes back towards you and so on and so forth)

i think... i hope cos i've got that sussed now

Posted:Do a split-time butterfly then reverse one of the chains (it was explained to me as "fling your hand out, the poi goes the other way") then do the same with the other. You end up with both your poi doing figure 8s wiht your hands going in front of each other but not crossing as in a weave.

It is infinately easier with someone showing you.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:TTN weave just involves doing forward TTN on one side of your body then as you bring your hands across to the other side of your body the poi are naturally spinning in reverse TTN, now the tricky bit is getting your hands out of the way.......

Its almost like you swap your hands over (ie which one is on top) in front of you as you come over, um..........

You'll get it
