Step 2 Draw a hexagon side the circle.hexagonal pattern3-step1

Step 3 Draw another hexagon. This one fits inside the hexagon from the previous step.hexagonal pattern3-step2

Step 4 Draw three lines that pass through the intersections indicated with small red squares.hexagonal pattern3-step3

Step 5 Draw another three lines that pass through three other intersections indicated with small red squares.

 

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.

Step 7 The composition that is created when the patterns is tessellated in a grid of hexagons.
