This is a complicated model designed by Eric Gjerde, and hthe diagrams are found in his book “Origami Tessellations.”
This tessellation is pretty complicated, since…
1. There are A LOT of offset creases to be folded.2. There is a part
where you have to fold a twist, and then fold a triangle below that
3. There are some twists “in the wrong direction” that you
have to correct in the end, specifically the hexagon twist in the middle
and the arms of each triangle twist.

and beautiful model reminiscent of the designs commonly made by the
For the difficulty rating, I will give it a 7.5.
This is not a tessellation for the beginners or the lazy people. If you are one of them (oh my god I'm talking about beginners please don't be offended) , just start with the Five-and-Four Tessellation.
