I created this file so that I could obtain flowers that were not even petaled (since with even n, one can do this using jump sets as shown in the next file). After each jump to the next vertex we go to the center of the circle then back to that vertex before going to the next vertex around the circle. Referring to vertices by number, the pattern starts out at the top vertex (which we always call 0), and goes: 0 to 1 to Center to 1 to 2 to Center to 2 to 3 to … to n-1 to 0 to Center and back to 0 where the circuit is completed. Explainers provide detail on what this implies for images using this three-step process of moving between vertices one by one.
There is NO web version of this file, the only way to play with these images is to use the Excel file provided above.
The next file shows you an alternative way to create flowers when n is even.
