**'Star' Tessellations - Type 7**

(click on the image for a larger version)

The above edge network is a faceting is of the cells of an 8,8,4 tessellation, only alternating octagons (in a checkerboard pattern) are faceted. A copy of this network superimposed on the original 8, 8, 4 tessellation is linked here.

As only three edges meet at each vertex, only one tessellation can be formed using this network:

8, ^{4}/_{3},
^{8}/_{5}

**K**:-, **B**:152, **C**: 2 ^{4}/_{3} 4 | = t'{4 : 4}

Clicking onto the vertex figures above will show the sample cell superimposed on the above network.

**Next: Type 8
