 A gap or hole is an object missing from a pattern that is otherwise the same as another pattern that uses more objects. In siteswap notation, a gap (a beat with an empty hand) is a 0. Patterns with gaps (e.g. 55550) can be used as exercises to prepare for the full patterns (e.g. 5).

Sometimes if an object is removed from a siteswap to make a gap pattern, the new pattern takes more beats than the original pattern before it repeats. The notation for 534 without the ball that is always thrown as a 3 (504) is a period 3 sequence like the original pattern, but removing any of the other balls results in the period 9 pattern 534034530.

Variations[]

Siteswaps similar to basic patterns with gaps but with an object held in the hand during the pause (a 2) instead of having an empty hand (a 0):
