4. |
Construct a circle centered at angular point nr. 2, passing through angular point nr. 1. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle centered at angular point nr. 12, passing through angular point nr. 1. | ||||

6. |
Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 1 and the upper intersection of circles 3 and 4. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of dodecagon 2 and line 6, tangent to circle 5 at the righthand side. | ||||

8. |

9. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circles 4 and 5, tangent to line 6. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

11. |

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle passing through angular points nrs. 1 and 6, tangent to circle 10 at the lefthand side. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle passing through angular points nrs. 2 and 7, tangent to circle 10 at the lefthand side. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 14, tangent to circle 8 at the lefthand side. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circles 8 and 14, tangent to circle 15 at the near side. | ||||

17. |
Remove all parts from circles 4, 8, 13, 15, and 16, such that the shown pattern remains. | ||||

18. |
Copy pattern 17 eleven times, to the corresponding positions with respect to the other angular points of dodecagon 2, as shown. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 9 to the center of circle 7. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 11 to the center of circle 7. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 7 at the upper side. | ||||

22. |
