Step 1: Guides

First, use a pencil and ruler to draw three transverse guide lines. The lines lie straight on top of each other with the same spacing. You can see how this works in the template.

Step 2: Wheels and chainring

Use the dividers to draw two circles of the same size on the lines, one on the left and one on the right. Place the needle on the middle line and draw once around. Draw an additional small circle around the center of the left circle and an even smaller circle around the center of the right future hoop. Next to the left tire, draw a small circle for the chainring with a small distance.
