Using the compass, draw a circle.

Put the pointy end of the compass on the circumference of the circle, any point you like.

From that point, draw a small curve bisecting the circle.

Then, put the pointy end on the curve that you just drew. Do the same thing.

Repeat until there are six curve. Use your ruler to join these lines together.
