well don't you draw 2 arcs from each vertex...?

Don't you need just one arc for the last vertex?

Start with the circle with radius r and points A and B. |dw:1440531625085:dw|

Now still with radius r and center at B, strike two arcs on the circle. |dw:1440531777555:dw|

Now open the compass to radius CD and use center C to draw another arc marking point E. |dw:1440531855012:dw|

so it all depends on what you think... 1 continuous arc from each vertex or a arc on each side... lol..
