Step 3

Now that the middle layer is done, take a look at the top (yellow). The yellow blocks will likely be positioned in either a straight line, cross or L-shape. Make that shape face you, and then solve to make a yellow cross.

Once the cross is made, turn it so that one or more of the edge cubies at the end of the cross matches up with a center cubie. If all of the colors match up, excellent, move on to the next step. If not...

Turn the cubes so that each end of the cross matches up with the center cubie that is it aligned with. This is probably one of the more time-consuming parts of solving the puzzle but, remember, speed takes time and more efficient solving methods.

Keep chugging along to Step 4!
