The instructions for bars 25-32 are

25-26 Triangles on sides
27-28 1C pas-de-basque round to face opposite sides whilst 2C and 3C cross to own
sides, RH
29-30 Triangles on sides
31-32 1C dance round by right shoulder and out to 2nd places own sides facing out
ready for repeat

Argument for pas de basque - 8 bars of pas de basque in double triangles

Argument for skip change - it is not really double triangles because the 2s & 3s
cross over, and you use skip change for the next 2 bars while casting off, and it
doesn't say that the 2s & 3s continue setting

It is just an opinion
