Create two rings of 16 Speks. Stack them on top of each other so that they interlock.
Wrap a chain of Speks around the outside of each ring so that they all interlock. The outer rings will form a hexagonal shape.
At one “corner” of the hexagonal shape, gently push until an edge 2 Speks long is formed. Repeat this action at the opposite end so that you form a diamond shape as pictured above.
Flip the diamond over and place 4 Speks thusly.
With this side still facing upwards, gently bend the points of the diamond downwards so that the newly placed Speks slide into the open joints.
Repeat the above steps 4 more times. Join each diamond along the edges so that they align.
