Assorted Shurikens

This pattern is another variation on the triangular grid (black triangles). The difference is that the polygons inserted between the triangles have less symmetry than the previous ones. Notice that there are three types of holes where the original grids vertices were--hence "assorted". I'm calling the holes shurikens because to the rotational symmetry making them look a little like throwing stars. Two sets of shurikens are mirror images of each other and the third is the one with boxy ends. I like this pattern because of the not-quite-rightness of the repeating pattern. Perhaps I'll change the border of one of the "shurikens" to a different colour to emphasize the differences...
