The loom beaded strip has a colorless/grey field. The repeating pattern is a grey cross outlined in dark blue and pink. This alternates with a pink horizontal line, joining two thick grey chevrons, outlined in black and pink. The pink line crosses a black chevron and there are wide open "U" shapes in black on either side of the pink line.
