  • Step 1

    Pull your first color of speks into a single chain. Fold the chain back on itself every 32 speks to form a 32x8 spek sheet.


  • Step 2

    Repeat step one with a second color.

  • Step 3

    Use your speks splitter card to split each of the sheets into 2x32 spek strips.

  • Step 4

    Align and attach alternating colors of strips into a 16x32 speks sheet.

  • Step 5

    Use your splitter card to remove a 1x16 alternating spek chain.

  • Step 6

    Attach the ends of the chain to form a alternating 16 speks ring. Repeat steps five and six 32 times/

  • Step 7

    Stack each ring, rotating each layer to make your tube. You can align or interlock the layers, but interlocking makes a stronger shape!

  • The End.
