**Week 1 Method**

The method proposed is a variation of Petrus, but allows for an easier (subjective) solution of last layer and F2L.

**Step 1: 2x2x3**

Pretty straightforward, you just build the a 2x2x3 block. If you need help with this step, consult your friendly neighborhood Lars Petrus.

**Step 2: Solve 2 Corners and 1 Edge**

Put two D or U corners in thier respective spots; it would be cool if you oriented them too. A cool guy would throw in a solved edge.

**Step 3: Solve Remaining Corner**

This can be done in one look (CLL) or 2 looks. Influencing EO is possible for preparation of the next step.

**Solve 4: Solve the Remaining 6 edge**

This step is a bit non-intuitive at first because you might be thinking "How do I solve 6 edges at once?". The answer is simple really. Ask a Roux user what he would do, and the answer is probably something along the lines of MOO!
