Tip: If a Bob or Single is called take the same action as in Plain Bob for example at 3/4 Up 'Making the Bob', other pieces of work 'Run In', 'Run Out' etc. are the same too. However the actual work that follows is different in this method.

This method is very similar to St Martin's Bob Doubles, the snaps either side of 2nds in this method are replaced by 2nds places.
