Porcupines Origami Tessellation

A few posts prior I solved a tessellation by gatheringfolds called knotted webs. 

That gave me the idea to just pare down what she had done to a singular component. It's from there that this tessellation was created. 

At its most basic it's triangles and open back hexagons. 

However, the arrangement of the triangles off of the hexagons creates some unusually structured parallelograms. 

As with any other true origami tessellation, this uses a single sheet of paper trimmed to a hexagon, but otherwise uncut.

You can, of course, execute the same triangle grid and the same finished model from a rectangular sheet of standard printer paper.  It's just a little easier to start with a hexagon. 

A crease pattern is included at the bottom of this post.
