Now that you have solved the top two layers, you must feel very good about yourself. Only one layer to go! Unfortunately this one layer is the most difficult layer to solve, and will take more effort than the effort spent solving the top two layers combined. If you are determined to solve the Rubik's cube nothing can stop you.

First turn your Rubik's cube upside down.

Goal

The goal here is to form a cross on the last layer. In our examples, the last layer is blue side. So when this step is done, you should see a blue cross like the following:

Let's do it!

You only need to remember the following two algorithms.

 L U F U' F' L' L F U F' U' L'

Suppose you are just unlucky and you start out with neither of the configurations above, then you simply apply either algorithm and go from there. After you are done, the Rubik's cube looks like this.
