Jewel Weave Origami Tessellation

I saw a similar fold to this one on flickr and it reminded me of a tessellation I created some years ago.

That one used the same shapes as this, but at half the size. It didn't come out that great as it was a small and tightly packed fold. So I had intended to revisit it someday.

This one is a larger proportioned version of that. Thanks to the larger shapes it is much easier to execute neatly, but it still has a decent repeat on a 32 pleat grid. 

The original idea used small hex twists. This one uses open back hex twists. 

Very poorly drawn crease pattern included below.
