Attached is the sequence and pattern. One change Kia made from early on however was to make the head bolts a torque to yield item, so you need new ones to replace the ones you removed. The head doesn't seal properly if you re-use the bolts. Be careful with the angle steps as well as you have to follow the pattern for those as well.
Be sure you chase the threads in the block to remove anything that might cause stiff threads.
