the speks checkerboard cube step-by-step:
create a chain of 16 speks in alternating colors, following a 4-2-2-4-2-2 pattern.
close the chain into a loop and pinch it together to create 2 rows as shown.
repeat steps one and two to create a second pair of rows with the opposite color on top, then attach it to your first.
keep making and attaching rows in alternating colors but do not flip the 5th, 13th, 21st, and 29th pairs as shown.
I believe in you.
next start folding your sheet 8 rows in. make sure the fold is aligned, not interlocked.
continue folding the sheet back and forth every 8 rows until the cube is complete.
