Miss Bianca nods, "Now, I want you to do mohawk straight from the crossover. So it's crossover, hold the inside edge, go directly into the mohawk."

I give her a long slow stare.
When I passed Basic 8 many years ago, the test was crossover, crossover, mohawk, back cross, back cross, turn forward.
"So why did they add the step behind, step over going backwards?" I ask, "Was it to get people ready for back cross rolls?"
Then, I swear, I see a twinkle in her eye. Miss Bianca has more Evil Plans, buried deep inside her Evil Plan!
