**Patterns** can make a bland Rubik's Cube a lot more exciting and if you memorize them, you can really impress your friends! In this article, there will be many patterns along with algorithms to show how to make patterns from a solved cube. (See Notation for what the sequences mean.)

### Impossible Patterns

Unfortunately, some desirable patterns turn out to be impossible. The two below were both featured as jokes on badges (captioned "Try this one!") in the 1980s.

Impossible due to positional parity

(the stripes outline a tetrahedron)

Impossible due to corner twist

## Tricks of Rubik’s Cube (Patterns) – Impressing your friends

There are some tricks of Rubik’s cube you could learn to impress your friends. These tricks don’t require you to know its solution, anyone with the algorithms can perform the tricks.

Only one requirement is that the cube should be in **solved position** before performing the tricks on it.

**Rubik’s cube Patterns – Tricks to impress **

- 24 moves trick
- Cube within cube
- Cube within a cube within a cube
- The checkerboard
- The wire
- Unmatched cross
- Perpendicular lines
- Turned tips
- Plus Minus
- Vertical Lines
- Gift Box
- Cross
- Four Spots
- Six Spots
- 2 H-Pattern
- 6 H-Pattern
- Displaced Motif
- Conclusion

**24 moves trick**

One of the tricks of Rubik’s cube, that lets you solve it with **24 moves**. This is done by simply repeating four moves 6 times, which brings the cube back in its original position from which you did start.

Algorithm: **[****R Ui Ri U ] x 6**

You can either move **L **instead of **R**, whichever you feel comfortable with.

**Cube within cube**

I like this pattern a lot. This will make it look like, one 2×2 cube is fitted inside the 3×3 cube.

Algorithm:**F L F Ui R U F2 L2 Ui Li B Di Bi L2 U**

This pattern can be brought back to its solved position by either performing the algorithm opposite to it, or performing the same algorithm twice.

**Cube within Cube within Cube**

This is just an advanced version of cube within cube, it gives a total of 3 cubes.

Algorithm:**U’ L’ U’ F’ R2 B’ R F U B2 U B’ L U’ F U R F’**

**The checkerboard**

This pattern is simple with all its faces with the edge pieces of colour of the opposite face.

Algorithm: **M2 E2 S2**

**The wire**

This pattern looks like the four adjacent faces of the cube have a wire tangled around in a crisscross pattern.

Algorithm:**R L F B R L F B R L F B R2 B2 L2 R2 B2 L2**

**ALSO READ:****“Everything about the Rubik’s Cube – You never knew.“**

**Unmatched Cross**

All the center pieces have four different edge pieces attached to it.

Algorithm:**L2 D’ B2 L2 B2 D’ F2 D U’ B2 L B2 F’ L B’ F U’ F’ U L2**

**Perpendicular lines**

Four of the six adjacent faces have **perpendicular line** with colour of the opposite face.

Algorithm: **R2′ U2′ R2′ U2′ R2′ U2′ L2 D2 L2 D2 L2 D2 L2 R2′**

**Turned Tips**

Two opposite corners of the cube are turned clockwise and anticlockwise respectively.

Algorithm: **U B D’ F2 D B’ U’ R2 D F2 D’ R2 D F2 D’ R2**

**Plus Minus**

The four adjacent faces of the cube gets plus and minus sign alternatively.

Algorithm: **U2 R2 L2 U2 R2 L2**

**ALSO READ:****“8 Types of Rubik’s Cube You should try Today“**

**Vertical lines**

This pattern gives the cube its four adjacent faces vertical lines.

Algorithm: **F U F R L2 B D’ R D2 L D’ B R2 L F U F**

**Gift Box**

This pattern looks like a plus sign is added to the Vertical Lines Pattern. It gives an illusion of a wrapped gift.

Algorithm: **U B2 R2 B2 L2 F2 R2 D’ F2 L2 B F’ L F2 D U’ R2 F’ L’ R’**

**Cross**

This gives the cube all its faces a **cross pattern**.

Algorithm: **R2 L’ D F2 R’ D’ R’ L U’ D R D B2 R’ U D2**

**Four Spots**

Four adjacent faces with different center pieces.

Algorithm: **F2 B2 U D’ R2 L2 U D’**

**Six Spots**

All the faces with different center pieces.

Algorithm: **U D’ R L’ F B’ U D’**

**2 H-Pattern**

Two opposite faces with **HHH**on it.

Algorithm: **M2 U2 M2 U2**

**6 H-Pattern**

**H** on all the six faces of the cube.

Algorithm: **U2 R2 F2 U2 D2 F2 L2 U2**

**Displaced Motif**

It looks like a 3x2x2 cube is placed within a 3x3x3 cube, but only can be seen from one side.

Algorithm: **L2 B2 D’ B2 D L2 U R2 D R2 B U R’ F2 R U’ B’ U’**

### Conclusion

So, we have discussed a lot of tricks and patterns of Rubik’s cube here which you can learn to impress your friends. Solving the cube is becoming common nowadays, therefore these tricks and patterns will bring some excitement among your friends.

To revert back the cube to its original position you need to perform the algorithm opposite to that of the respective algorithm.

One of the nicest things about solving (or “differently solving” ) the cube is this – you get to make patterns!

Rubik’s Cube Patterns are arrangements of the cube that have some nice symmetry to them. There are two kinds.

- Some rubik’s cube patterns can be made by repeating the same moves over and over. So they are not only a pattern of pieces, but a pattern of moves. One example is the “Six Dots” pattern.
- Other patterns can’t be made by any obvious pattern of moves, but they still look very nice. An example is the “Cube in a Cube” Rubik’s cube pattern.

Of course, you can also have

- Positions that are made by repeating the same moves over and over, or by apparently random sequence of moves, but otherwise don’t look that nice.

Among cube experts, this third kind of pattern is called *“all messed up”*.

Below, I’ve listed a few of my favourite Rubik’s cube patterns. For each pattern, The link to each page contains a bigger picture, and also a movie showing how to make it.

One of the classic Rubik’s Cube patterns, and one of the easiest to make, too. | ||

The Fish PatternHere’s a nice simple pattern, with a fish on the top and bottom faces. It’s also easy to make. | ||

Six SpotsAnother classic Rubik’s Cube Pattern, also known as six dots or snake eyes. | ||

Zig ZagThis easy-to-make pattern paints a zig-zag stripe around the sides of the cube | ||

Four CrossesThis pattern is closely related to the Zig Zag, and is almost as easy to make. | ||

Anaconda/SnakeThis pattern has a wiggly curve that passes through all six faces |

I’ll be adding more patterns to this list, so come back soon!

But I miss you so much. And having raised herself, she again took a penis to its full length, groaning, and pulling. Off her shirt, immediately walked her nails over my shoulders. And five minutes later, Alena, screeching, tightly squeezed the penis with her vagina, shuddered.

Her other sister, Laura, warned her that she would be arriving with her third daughters, Tiffany, Nikki and Jessica no later than 9 am. Therefore, the girls helped to clean everything up Debra and everyone wished each other good night.

The day quickly came to an end and it was time to rest. The weekend is ahead and we are planning to spend tonight in bed. In bed, in the sense of having sex from dusk until dawn, as much as we wish. A hotel room was booked in advance, the necessary things were collected, fruits and champagne and necessary products were bought.
