This is a more conventional way of folding my square interlace tessellation than the bracelet. I believe this model to be my first truly original tessellation which I was really happy about. My previous tessellations were either modifications of existing designs or lacked the polish I wanted my models to have.

Folded from a 32×32 grid, with each molecule using 6×6 grid units (plus one grid unit of margin around the model).

Also, do have a look at my later folds of this model (e.g. Elephant Hide version) as it took me some time to learn how to fold this model well. Yes, even when you design a model yourself, it takes time and work to learn how to fold it. One of the keys to properly flattening the tessellation is properly applied wet-folding.
