Interlaced Christmas Tree or ICT

results of the interlacing of three distinct structures (minus the red rods) :
3 structures that we'll interlace

Actually we build a modular chain on the same principle as Peter's snakes (also explained by Rafael Millán).
But instead of interlacing the links of the chain by 2, we intertwine them by 3.
I call it the ICT chain.

First of all, let's build a bunch of scale-2 triangles.
Step 1:
As Peter says: "The more you can build with closed loops, the better"!
