how to draw  a Compass Rose step-by-step

Begin by drawing a small circle. This forms the center of the compass.

Extend four rays from the compass center, meeting at sharp points to represent cardinal directions.

Draw a straight line down the center of each ray.

Draw two circles around the center of the compass. Notice how they are partially hidden by the rays.

Using the compass center, draw four new shorter rays connecting the circles to show the intercardinal directions.

Draw a straight line down the center of each of the remaining rays.

Draw a circle that meets the tips of the intercardinal rays. Then, draw another, slightly larger circle just outside it.

Draw lines across the circle - one at the tip of each intercardinal ray, and halfway between the intra cardinal and cardinal rays.

Use abbreviations for north, south, west and east on each ray; strokes have serifs at ends.
