Structure and method
Note that in each move, you must decide whether or not to turn the transferring loop, the chart does not specify this.
The chart only specifies WHICH COLOR must be in upper position when the loop arrives onto its new finger.
When you have to turn the loop then the precise way it is turned is important! For this planner there are 4 moves per cycle and for this planner turns (if necessary) must be made in a definite manner depending which of the 4 moves you are doing:
  1. H
  2. C
  3. H
  4. C
Why such detail?
Starting ideas

Instruction reminder:

Each cycle has 4 operations with all unreversed (U).

  1. On left hand: pull A left down through B left and C left
  2. On left hand: pull C right through D right, D left and C left
  3. On right hand: pull A right down through B right and C right
  4. On right hand: pull C left through D left, D right and C right

This is the yellow chart:

* loops are taken according to colour
