Have At Thy Coat Old Woman
for a line of as many couples as will.

The standard formula of (n-1)x3 works for each of the progressive choruses in this dance, and each verse will require an extra two repeats to complete, for a full formula of ((n-1)x3)+2)x3.
3 couples = 24 repeats, 4 couples = 33, 5 = 52
Music: none
Part 1
Verse 1, Part A (one repeat)
1&2: Everyone lead up a double and fall back a double, face your partner
3&4: Set and turn single, left
Verse 1, Part B (one repeat)
1&2: Everyone lead up a double and fall back a double, face your partner
3&4: Set and turn single, right
First progressive chorus:
1: Couple 1 and couple 2 meet a double
2: Couple 1 and couple 2 fall back a double
3: Couple 1 crosses quickly and man 1 half-turns woman 2 as woman 1 half-turns man 2, all in one double
4: Couple 1 half-turns each other in a double to return to the proper side of the set
R: Continue this figure, the rest following, sitting out one repeat at the top or bottom and returning as the opposite type.  Once everyone is back where they started, the second verse can begin.
