Logo Challenge 3 - Star Square

Age 7 to 16 Challenge Level:
Each of the following illustrate a nested REPEAT.
The first example is for a circle based on squares, the second for hexagons.

Note that for the square the inner REPEAT means you move along six sides. This seems redundant but it is a way to get the turtle to a position which means it is ready to draw the next square.

A similar strategy has been applied to the hexagon pattern with REPEAT 9 not REPEAT 6.

and
to HESP
