Here a more accurate answer.

And here is a simpler solution for the first picture (but you can use this kind of solution to fake the second one):

  • Create 2 bricks (front view), the proportion is 2 x 1 units, subdivide a bit, rotate them 45° and stick them together.

enter image description here

  • Use a first Array modifier to duplicate them on the X axis. Find the good Relative Offset value.

enter image description here

  • Use a second Array modifier to duplicate them on the Z axis. Again, find the good Relative Offset value.

enter image description here

  • Add a Simple Deform modifier / Bend mode, find the good Deform Angle value (more than 360°).

enter image description here

  • Add a Subdivision Surface modifier and press Smooth Shading.
  • To make it follow a curve, use a Curve modifier.
