2x2 Twist


Very few patterns are possible on the 2x2 puzzle cubes because there are only 8 parts, each of which can be deflected into 3 orientations. 8 doesn't divide evenly into 3.

This "pattern" demonstrates the problem rather clearly. I had to arrange it with two slightly different patterns, depending on which side you view it from. One side includes an extra twist of one of the corners.

Dude, that's not funny. A 2x2 is a serious pattern. Go home!

I just figured out how to make this one at home. Took about 10 minutes.

I saw a 2 by 2 twist once in Vegas. I think that she was double jointed.
