Start swinging the Poi forward with equal timing. Hold your arms out in front as you do it this time.
Now very slowly rotate your palms inwards towards each other and continue rotating until palms are facing upwards. When you do this you will notice that the Poi will start crossing.
Put the bottom arm slightly infront of the top arm. See animation to the right and close up. You will see that the Poi are now going in opposite directions.
If your Poi knock together when you are coming into the butterfly check again that the bottom hand is slightly in front of the other.
If they still collide, check that both your palms are facing up towards the sky.
