Corrugated kagome polyphase unit weaver

The image shows a paper model of a 3-phase corrugated unit weaver. Identical units overlap shingle-like to form a weaver that is everywhere 3 plies thick. Since every underlying triangle in (non-unit) corrugated kagome is overlaid by 3 weavers each covering 2/3 of the triangle, such a basket is 2 plies thick. Realized with 3-phase unit weavers, the same basket will be 6 plies thick.
