Fold the remaining pleats in a clockwise orientation. The rhombus plateau will twist with them. 13. This is what the twist looks like with the pleats flattened. Push down on the corners of the rhombus plateau, and you will get a larger rhombus. 14. This shows the finished arrow twist. Reverse - You might have an easier time twisting the arrow counterclockwise than the rhombic twist.

Push counterclockwise on all three points of the base of the peak. 5. As you press, the center will begin to spread apart, forming new creases off of the grid lines.

2. Change the orientation of the pleat. 3. Unfold. There should be significant bias in the folds. This is the first of three pleats that we will make. First, we need to prepare the pleats. 4. Turn counterclockwise 60°. Now, we’re going to work on the next pleat. 5. Repeat steps 1–3 on this diagonal. If it helps, flatten the paper entirely before starting this step.
