One favorite variation is an 18 count first pattern, dropping counts 15-16 above, followed by a
16 count pattern to the end, by dropping counts 1-2 on the repeats. This uses both Option 1 and
2 below.
Option 1: Some couples find it easier to balance by omitting counts 15-16.
Option 2: Some couples eliminate counts 1-2 on all repeats.
