Can someone help me with the collapsing? It doesn't look flat foldable or even foldable:

It's not supposed to be flat foldable. I believe the long diagonal lines that go through the picture are just reference lines.

As Anna said, the long diagonals that seem to cross all sorts of things they shouldn't are just reference lines. It is 3D, not flat-foldable, but it is foldable. I've folded it before.

Same here, I don't know how to fold it into 3D and which bits need to tuck into where.
I don't know if it's possible for someone to make a video of them folding the Klein bottle because I really want to fold one myself.
Also, is there any suggestion of paper for folding this?

link of cease pattern seems to be changed: ... -opus-444/ I also have the pdf of the magazine which have more details of folding on it (if I'm allowed to post it?)

I'm abysmal at deciphering crease patterns, sorry I can't help directly, but I did find this picture of the bottom; maybe it can help?
