Jenny had the idea of a new twist on the classic Scrambled V patterns: The juggler walking over to change the feeder now walks through the pattern to the other side, instead of around the outside. In other words, B walks to stand by A’s right, not to A’s left.
A new takeout pattern based on a period 9 base pattern with 7 clubs. I designed the base pattern specifically for Shorty so we could have an ambidextrous manipulator pattern that is hard to juggle but easy to remember.
Like other about-patterns, Why Not About has 12 starting positions: 3 persons x 2 positions (straight and cross passes) x 2 sides on which the manipulator can start (left or right of B). With a period of 15 beats between the manipulator changes, a full round takes 180 beats (and 42 seconds) before all jugglers have again reached their starting position.
966-about-on-socks is a 4-person passing pattern with 9 clubs, where every juggler should be able to pass 7 clubs in 3-count with double passes.
