Blindfold solving is an art form consisting of memory and finger dexterity. This tutorial will server as an introduction into the realm of blindfold solving by starting with the 2x2x2 cube.

The time it may take you to learn this skill varies. If you already have experience with solving Rubik’s cubes, it may only take a few hours to learn the 2x2 blindfolded. If you are completely new to solving cubes, it may take you a week of practice to master the 2x2 blindfolded. No matter what your abilities are now, don’t fret. Solving a cube blindfolded is a skill you can use to attract soul mates and impress future employers.
Step 1: Supplies
For this tutorial, you will need a 2x2x2 Rubik’s Cube and a blindfold. You can find a 2x2 cube for about $5 to $11 on any online cube shop. Blindfolds can be found at your local general store and are usually cheap.
Note: If you don’t own a 2x2 cube, but own a 3x3 cube, you can still use this tutorial. The 2x2 cube is equivalent to the corners on a 3x3. If you follow this tutorial using a 3x3 you will be able to solve the corners, but not the edges.
