According to Thoinot Arbeau in Orchesography, a double left crossing as performed in the Scottish branle consists of a pied gauche largi, a pied droit approché, another pied gauche largi, and a pied croisé droit. In other words a step to the left, a right step bringing the feet almost together, a step to the left and then a lift and bend of the right leg so that it crosses in front of the left.
