Basic patterns are the simplest kind of juggling patterns. In these patterns, every throw is the same height, and either all the throws cross from one side of the pattern to the other, or none of them do. In most basic patterns, objects are thrown from the inside of the pattern and caught on the outside. Basic patterns have no special kinds of throws or catches like backcrosses, multiplexes, or penguins. There are four basic patterns for two-handed toss juggling:

2-handed basic patterns Asynchronous

(One hand throws at a time)

Synchronous

(Both hands throw at the same time)

Crossing

(Each object is thrown with one hand and caught with the other)

3 200

Cascade

4x4x 200

Wimpy pattern

Non-crossing

(Each object is thrown and caught with the same hand)

4 200

Asynch fountain

44 sync 200

Synch fountain

The cascade can be done with any odd number of objects, and the wimpy and fountain patterns can be done with any even number. These are the easiest (non-multiplex) ways to (toss) juggle any number of objects.

4x4x lift 200

4 ball lift bounce

4x4x force 200

4 ball force bounce

With clubs, the basic pattern is normally done with each throw rotating half as many times as the number of clubs being juggled, rounding down for odd numbers: 3 clubs are done with single rotations, 4 and 5 are done with doubles, 6 and 7 are done with triples, 8 and 9 are done with quads. Any higher or lower number of rotations is usually considered a more difficult trick.

There are two kinds of basic patterns for bounce juggling: the lift bounce and the force bounce. Unlike most basic patterns, bounce juggling patterns are normally done with outside throws. Even numbers of balls are usually bounced juggled in a wimpy pattern, rather than a fountain.

The basic pattern for one-handed juggling is the "rolling out" pattern, where the objects go in an arc to the right (clockwise) if the right hand is being used, or to the left (counter-clockwise) if the left hand is being used.

40 out 200

2 in 1 hand

60 out 200

3 in 1 hand

80 out 200

4 in 1 hand

The 1-count is the most difficult basic pattern for passing, but it is commonly used for passing world records because only the number of passes caught is counted in the records. 2-counts and 4-counts are the most popular basic patterns for passing. An easier pattern for beginning passers is the 6-count.

6 1count 200

6 ball 1-count

6 2count 200

6 ball 2-count

6 4count 200

6 ball 4-count

6 6count 200

6 ball 6-count

There are three basic patterns for passing with three hands:

4 in 3 200

For a number of objects that is 1 more than a multiple of 3, if the objects are thrown from one hand to the next hand in a counter-clockwise order, the throwing order for the hands is counter-clockwise.

5 in 3 200

For a number of objects that is 1 less than a multiple of 3, if the objects are thrown from one hand to the next hand in a counter-clockwise order, the throwing order for the hands is clockwise.

6 in 3 200

For a number of objects that is a multiple of 3, all three hands throw at the same time.

The basic pattern for juggling multiple diabolos is a circular pattern which can be done either high (with only one diabolo on the string at a time) or low (with more than one diabolo one the string at a time, called a shuffle).
