Goal

The Cross

To get started on our first layer, we’re going to be solving the white side pieces. At the end of this step, the white pieces will make a cross with the blue, red, orange and green pieces matched up with each of their center pieces.


Concept

This step is very simple. We will simply be finding one of our white pieces on the bottom layer and rotate it up onto the top layer. To do this, however, we’ll need to make sure it’s in the correct starting position to being with.
