Easy Cases

The Pair

Move the pair forward, then make room and slot it in.

Split Pair

F2L03.png F2L04.png

Front half faces forward, would be correctly placed by turning downward. Back half is parallel to forward direction and oppositely colored.

Bring the pair together, then move it forward and return.

Reposition Edge

Twisted Split Pair, Perpendicular

F2L05.png F2L06.png

Front half faces forward, back half lies perpendicular and is similarly colored.

Move backward, then hide the front half in the corner and move the back half in to make the pair.

Becomes The Pair.

Twisted Split Pair, Parallel

F2L07.png F2L08.png

Front half faces forward, back half lies parallel and is similarly colored.

Move backward, then hide the front half in the corner and move the back half in (by a half-turn) to make the pair.

Reposition Edge and Flip Corner

Crossed Split Pair

F2L09.png F2L10.png

Split pair, but back half lies perpendicular.

Move forward, then hide the front in the corner, then move the back half into position for the split pair.

Twisted Pair

Pair, but the back half is twisted.

Move backward, then hide the front half in the corner and move the back half into position (by a half-turn) for a split pair.

Twisted Sideways Pair

F2L13.png F2L14.png

Front half faces forward, back half attached sideways and oppositely colored. Each side faces "correctly."

Move toward the back half, hide the front half in the corner, and position the back half for a split pair.
