Rhombus Circus Origami Tessellation
I tried using a 48 pleat grid, but my paper just wasn't sturdy enough.
I mapped it all out, but was only able to do the 32 pleat version with the paper that I currently have. .
Some fancy elephant hide paper might be in my future. Depends on how much I obsess about it.
It would also be really cool to see someone else fold it. If some industrious folder were so inclined.
It's a pretty cool design. It's tricky to execute and a somewhat complicated pattern.
The idea started with this single module. It came together rather easily.
How to repeat it didn't come as quickly, but I eventually found it hiding there in the grid and was able to map it all out in detail.
It was really disappointing however, to discover that I wouldn't be able to fold it in all its full repeat glory yet.
Bigger paper. Better paper. I'm not sure.
A partial crease pattern is shown below.
I've uploaded the full crease pattern it to my flickr feed also, so the full size image is available.
