For this sphere the two sub-strips are completely split. Because they are different they are marked with one or two little notches at the top. When you fix the 16 strips to the ring piece you must alternate between the two types. For Sphere #008 I used two shades of pale yellow and two shades of red. Also alternating between colours I fixed the darker red and the darker yellow to one ring and the lighter colours to the other. When weaving the swirl pattern appears. See Sphere #005 for more instructions.
