Hexagonal Bipyramid

   A woven Hexagonal Bipyramid would do very well for a Christmas ornament. Just add a piece of string on top. From the same pattern you may also make a bipyramid with 4 or 8 faces. For the Hexagonal Bipyramid you need to cut out 2 times 3 pieces. You may use 2 or 6…

3-point

Woven Rhombic Triacontahedron

This form is easy to weave but it takes some time. When woven from 6 colours the form will present all possible combinations of 3 and 5 colours in the points. The woven Rhombic Triacontahedron has 30 faces and is made from 6 identical parts. I used 6 different colours. The template of a single…

Woven Rhombic Dodecahedron

Easy to weave. Looks impressive. I include patterns for a form with three strips and one with two. The form with two strips has a volume comparable to those of the tetrahedron and the octahedron. A Rhombic Dodecahedron has 12 faces and is made from 8 pieces. You need four of the pieces you find on…

icosahedron 1

Woven Icosahedron

This woven icosahedron is surprisingly simple and easy to make. The pieces are actually the same as those used for the tetrahedron. You may use those too. I have however, only made three strips – otherwise the icosahedron would have been rather large compared to the other forms I made. Cut out 2 x 5…

tetrahedron 1

Woven Tetrahedron

This woven tetrahedron is far easier to weave than the octahedron. Cut out the 2 identical pieces Score along the flap and along the imaginary lines connecting the valley bottom between the small triangles and the corners Cut away the small triangles from the sides of the strips Crease so that the forms swirl in…

octa 3

Woven Octahedron

The woven octahedron is a bit of a challenge – also explaining how to. Cut out the 2 x 2 identical pieces, colour A (=yellow) and B (=purple) Score and crease along the imaginary lines between corners of the hexagon. The four small pyramids must all swirl in the same direction (#1) Fix the top…
