ROL'in a byte onto itself

What is the fastest and/or shortest code for rolling a pattern through a byte? I use it to trigger an action following a certain pattern. I came up with (18 cycles worst case / 12 bytes):
          clc
          lda pattern
          bpl no_carry
          sec
no_carry  rol pattern
          bcs take_action 

if your pattern ends on a 1 (bit 0 = 1) then you could also do (17 cycles worst case / 13 bytes)
          lda pattern
          bne @cont
          lda #%00110101   ; restore pattern
@cont     asl
          sta pattern
          bcs take_action 

any other variations?

What's could be a practical application for that?

I use it for an alternating fire pattern. This piece of code sits in the fire function and decides if it fires or not when called

bcc no_action
inc pattern


Wow, that's true art!

It's easier, faster and shorter, but does not work :) Where's the Accu coming from, and where does it go?

Yes the requirement was code that works (checking chapter 1 in "coding drunk for beginners" ;-) just need to add the branch to take action ;-)

All in all Hoogo's solution is both shortest and fastest. Part of the joy I get from coding on the C64 are finding elegant short, fast and clean solutions, within the constraints of the system, and I really like the aesthetics of this one :-)
