pattern for rotating tires?

What is the pattern for rotating tires? I called the tire place I got them at and they said front to rear, but I thought you were supposed to criss cross or something on a 4x4, what is correct?
they're MTs if it matters

I like the rears straight up and the fronts criss cross to the back method.

but if you have directional tires, you cant switch sides, you can only move front to back.

I have a problem with rotating. My rears lose tread at such a high rate that I don't want to move them to the front. So I just rotate to the rear when I get 2 new tires put on the front.....about every 6 months. Free tires FTW!
