Watch some tutorials and vids on it! Let us know if its not working out well for ya
It really dosent matter how the holes are poked. if you feel the need to make neat little rings or cool designs or whatever else floats your boat all the more power too ya but it really dosent matter. you can poke the holes random as hell as long as they are evenly spaced and it will be just fine.
