Here is a tutorial for the layered dodecahedron, a follow up on the tutorial for the layered cube.
There are indicative instructions for expanding to a soccerball shape.

inner layer 180,
second layer 240

3 Layer Dodecahedron

Shown here are 3loops and four loops (with assembled portion of a pentagon)
It is equivalent to use 6triangles and 2lines as is shown in the video.

assembled first layer
It is equivalent to use 6triangles and 2lines as is shown in the video.

3 of the 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron are assembled
It is equivalent to use 6triangles and 2lines as is shown in the video.
