Another huge improvement: 5X: 4 Enhanced Edge Flips (version 2) (36 btm).12 turns shorter. I solved the pattern first in 5 steps, and then inversed it to get the setup version. Solving was like so: 1, R2WFR2WF2UWF2R2WFR2U 2. NRWUNRUNRWUNRU 3. WFNUWFUWFNUWFU 4. UWFNUWFUWFNUWFU2 5. U2VLNUVLU2VLNUVL Per

Merry Christmas Here a nice and easy Christmas Pattern for the Wheel of Wisdom. Just do a normal Checkerboard Pattern, then twist all faces by 45Â° and do Another Checkerboard Pattern.

I guess this improvement would be the final fully optimised version: 6X: Outlined Large Waterfall (3) (29 btm).Per

Oops, I missed the similarities between the 2 patterns. This is a new one: TU NL B MR2 B' NL' NU' NL' B MR2 B' NL U' U WF' L2 U2 WF U WF U L2 U' WF' TU NL B MR2 B' NL' NU' NL' B MR2 B' NL WF' L2 U2 WF U WF U L2 U' WF' 5x: Diamond 2Flips (Variation 3) (22 btm)I think there are 4 cases of 'Diamond 2Flips' only, up to cube symmetry. So, this should be the last one. These are improved sequences: R2 D2 N3F2 ND2 N3L2 N3F2 N3L2 ND2 N3B VD2 N3B' N3F' V3D2 NB NF' N3U2 VF NB' D2 R2 T3R2 NB' NF T3R2 NF2 T3U2 NF2 T3U2 NB2 6x: Outlined Large Waterfall (1) (28 btm)T3L2 T3F2 S3R2 T3F2 T3R2 VU F2 N3L2 F2 NU' F2 N3R2 F2 N3U' F2 N3L2 N3R2 F2 F2 R2 MU N3R2 MU' R2 N3R2 F2 VF2 VB2 TD VF VB' SU2 VF' VB TD2 VF VB' SU2 VF' VB TD VF2 VB2 7x: 4 Candles, Advent Wreath (Version 2) (6) (38 btm)

Just to report an error: It seems that the published '5x: 8 Midge Flips' sequence is in error, because there are 4 midges at the wrong place: 8 Midge Flips (14 btm) R2 MF R2 MF2 SR' SF SR MF2 R2 MF' R2 SR' SF' SR Here is a correct but still unoptimized 8flip sequence: L R MU2 R' L' D R L MU R2 MU2 SR SU SR' MU2 R2 MU L' R' U' 5x: 8 Midge Flips (20 btm)
