(Couples as many as will in a circle.) Holding hands, double into the center and back. Repeat. Side left and right with your partner. Arm right once around with your partner. Arm left one and a half times, so that you end up in a new spot. Take hand in a circle & begin again.
From John Fitzhugh Millar's 1985 book, Elizabethan Country Dances. (Thanks to Charlene Charette.) The original Playford is a longways dance. See http://rgoldman.org/pryanksters/dances/halfhan.htm
