In most cases to reeve a pair of blocks it should be done with the 2 blocks at right angles to prevent line-to-line friction which negates the efficiency provided by the blocks.

Laying the 2 blocks at right angles (use a cloth to maintain this to make it easier to observe the proper run), terminate the rope end on the block with a terminus. run to the center sheave (if an even number, pick left) of the free block. Run the line to the same opposing sheave on the terminal block. Run the line to the next sheave to the right from center of the free block. Run the line to the nearest sheave on the terminal block. Continue this going from inside out, first center, then right, then left, then right, and this will work for 2 sheave through 5 sheave sets of blocks, including a set that may be 2& 3, 3&4, etc.
