Pet5 was created by Isabel S. It's a big cube method designed to remove OLL Parity, give a shorter edge pairing and 3x3 stage, and limiting cube rotations with minimal sacrifice to other steps.

## The Steps

1. Build two opposite centers, similar to Yau. Hold the cube with the centers on the left/right sides.

2. Solve 3 edge pieces and build a block on the left hand side with two corners.

3. Build 3, 1-wide center bars of the bottom, left, and right center colors; place them to build out the lefthand block, and connect them with edge wings. Continue until you've build block half way.

```   3a. If using an odd layered puzzle, (5x5, 7x7) build the center bar, but don't build with the center edge piece.
```

4. Build remaining center bars unsorted. Solve and orient 5 more edges.

```   4a. This method is better suited for solving edges on the M slice, but either option works.  If you want to solve edges on the E slice, reorient the cube
4b. It's recommended that the last 5 edges solved are the left/right hand edges. (top/bottom if solving on e slice)
```

5. Orient remaining edges, and finish the block.

6. Solve F2L, then use COLL and EPLL for last layer. PLL parity should be included for EPLL when solving even layered puzzles

## Pros

• Designed with 6x6 and 7x7 in mind
• Also prevents OLL parity on even layered puzzles

## Cons

• Solving the Petrus block is a less efficient way to solve centers.
• Reorienting cube when solving on E slice requires awkward cube rotations.
• Orienting final edges isn't that effecient move wise.
