Multiple pair crossing, as demonstrated by Jenny Rees. It sounds confusing, but if you follow it step by step, it works!!!

Sort all your bobbins into sets of 2. (e.g. 16 bobbins equal 8 sets of 2: 24 bobbins equal 12 sets of 2).

Call each set of two bobbins a “pair”. Put all pairs to the left.

Move the first four pairs to the right. Work cross, twist, with these four pairs on the right..

Divide these four pairs into two bundles. Call each of these two bundles your “new pairs”.

Bring down two pairs from the left, and work another cross twist with the two new pairs.

Divide this total of six pairs into two bundles

Continue bringing down two pairs from the left, working cross twist with the (now big) thread bundles on the right until all bobbins have been used up.

Divide all pairs into two equal bundles and put up your pin in the middle.

Take the far right hand pair of the right hand bundle and push it further up to the right.

Take the right hand pair from the left hand bundle, take it over what remains of the right hand bundle and place it to the left of the pair you pushed up to the right.

Now push the far right hand pair of the remaining right hand bundle to the right.

Take the right hand pair from the left hand bundle, take it over what is left of the right hand bundle and place it to the left of the pair you just pushed up to the right.

Repeat until all bobbins have been used up.

This same method of crossing can be used for 6 pair, 8 pair, 10 pair or more. The sky’s the limit!
