Hello Harold Bean,

For 220 start with the "24" on top. After the 12th exposure you will not
be able to cock the shutter. At this point change the switch so that the
"12" is on top. This will reset the counter to 0 (zero). Then depress the
release button fully again (this will not cause a double exposure since
you have not cocked the camera twice, it will only release the transport
mechanism so you can wind it again).
At this point you can wind up to #1 again and shoot the second twelve
There will be a gap of about one frame in the middle of the roll.
After the second twelve you will be able to wind the film onto the spool
just as when you shoot 120.

Thank You
