Step 1 Divide a circle into twelve equal sections. (You can download and print a template here)Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug

 

Step 2 Draw a hexagon side the circle.Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug

Step 3 Draw another hexagon. This one fits inside the hexagon from the previous step.Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug

Step 4 Draw three lines that pass through the intersections indicated with small red squares.Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug

Step 5 Draw another three lines that pass through three other intersections indicated with small red squares.Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug

 

Step 6. All the construction lines have now been drawn. Take a different colour pen or pencil and draw the red lines, tracing parts of lines you have drawn in the previous steps.Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug

Step 7 The composition that is created when the patterns is tessellated in a grid of hexagons.Islamic geometric pattern by Eric Broug
