# Returning Square 1 to a Cube

This list was originally made by Christian Eggermont in 1996.
I have modified the page to make it easier to follow the hyperlinks. You can use this list to return the Square 1 to a cube; albeit, a scrambled cube.

How to use this list:

• First look up the shape of your 'Cube' in the list. The left shape in each row is the upper layer, seen from above. The other one is the lower layer, seen from below.
Important: If you turn your 'Cube' upside down to find the lower shape make sure that the left side stays left!
• Next orient the layers so that you can turn the right half along the slightly more bold line shown in the list, and turn it.
• Then click 'next' and you'll arrive at the shape that the 'Cube' now has.
• Repeat until you arrive at a true cube shape.

Note: The distance given next to each pair of shapes tells you how many turns remain to get back to the true cube shape.

Secondly this list may be used to turn the true cube shape into any desired non-cube shape you wish. To do this, first find the desired shape, then choose 'Pair xx' where xx is the pair number. Now click 'next' until you arrive at the true cube shape. You can now use your browser's Back to see wich shape you need to accomplish first to get where you want. After some trial and error you'll find the correct turn. Continue using the back button and turning the square 1 until you reach your desired shape.

If you still do not have a true cube, turn once more to get the middle layer correct.
