  • The Chain.

    The first step to any shape is turning that clump into a chain. Starting with one or two speks, patiently pull a chain from your tangled mess.


  • The Tube.

    Wrap your chain around your finger to create a tube. Ready for something neat? Pull it out back into a chain and repeat.


  • Interlocked.

    Start by wrapping your chain around a ring of 6 speks and keep going. Eventually you’ll have a hexagonal sheet with interlocking speks.


  • Aligned.

    Again, start with your chain and zig-zag them back and forth folding at the highlighted speks. The speks will be lined up side by side.


  • Quick Tip.

    Speks not connecting in a chain? or fitting together interlocked instead of aligned? Flip them! Magnets are funny, but this will fix it most of the time!


  • 6 Sided Shape.

    Start with a ring of 6 speks. Wrap the chain around the ring until there are 3 speks on each side. The speks will be interlocking.


  • Five Sided Shape.

    Start with a ring of 5 speks. wrap the chain around the ring until there are 3 speks on each side. This shape will not be flat.


  • Four Sided Shape.

    Start with a ring of 4 speks. Wrap the chain around the ring until there are 3 speks on each side. This shape will be even less flat!

  • The end.
