Carousels Origami Tessellation


 This tessellation is a little different than my usual. Just an odd idea that I kinda made work, even though it didn't really want to do so. 

Right triangles arranged around central hexagons. 

It's very similar to open back triangles around hexes, except everything on one side is a little askew. 

Sometimes I get stuck on the notion that tessellations have to follow certain rules. But really, they can be whatever you can imagine and can execute. 

I believe I have a crease pattern. I just need to find it and upload a pic. Hopefully soon. 


Update: added crease pattern below. 

If I remember correctly, when I folded the model I actually moved the right triangles one pleat closer to the hexes  than is drawn in the sketch. 

Either way works.
