  • Step 1

    Create a chain and make a ring of 6 speks. Wrap your chain around the ring and continue until each side of the hexagon is 3 speks long.

  • Step 2

    Make a new chain and wrap around the hexagon Created in step one. Continue until each of the sides is 6 speks long.

  • Step 3

    Use a splitter card to remove the hexagon created in step one from the center of the hexagon from step two.

  • Step 4

    Repeat steps two and three until you have 5 holey hexagons.

  • Step 5

    Join one side of each hexagon to the next in a chain, be sure your joints are aligned, not interlocked.

  • Step 6

    Accordion fold the chain back and forth to stack all 5 hexagons into a stack to complete the shape!
