Xtreme Cross-Phrasing - Part 1

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14890)

Because of the size of this pattern, I am submitting it in two parts, with two combos in each. In reading Part 2, you may need to refer to Part 1 for the explanation of some moves.

Parts 1 and 2 together contain four 32-count, tapless, self-reversing combos which are fully cross-phrased -- you are off the phrase for all moves after the first, and do not resolve the cross-phrasing until count 32.

Combo I

The first 3 moves were posted on the Turnstep Bulletin Board by Psychostepper. The remainder is how I completed the routine.

(Repeat left lead)

Combo II

This combo uses four 7-count moves plus a 4-count move to get to 32 counts. The first move is similar to the first move of combo I, but ends in a straddle.

(Repeat left lead)

Move explanations: explanations assume right lead from home position (south), even though they may first be encountered with left lead and/or on the front (north) side, unless otherwise stated.
