The (not) 1.5-beat (un) weave (AKA Pendulum Weave)

Combine pendulums with weaves in a move that’s had lots of jovial controversy over what to be named


The 1.5-beat weave is a way to combine spin and pendulums into a weave-like pattern. It was originally called the 1.5-Beat Weave, but then somebody in England proved it wasn’t really 1.5 beats, and then somebody else proved that it’s not really a weave either. It’s still a great pattern and we can teach you how to do it regardless of what you want to call it!┬áRob Thorburn was the first person to show this to me, although apparently Durbs showed him.
