Octagonal magic

About Octagonal magic:

Left top - Take an octagon
Left middle - Cut one of the sides, say the bottom
Left bottom - Make the pattern at the bottom by rotating the cut octagon by 135 deg eight times.
Right - Four of the "octagonal hRidayakamalams" are joined to get this pattern, further decorated with lamps and a flower. If you try to join four hRidayakamalams this is how the pattern will look like.

Enjoy! Regards - mOhana

Jkm sir....I tried this pattern but found it very difficult as a freehand one...even I tried to make it on a graph... is it possible for you to convert this with a dot grid..:)...please take you own time if you can do this with dots.
