Hendecagon (11-sided Polygon) Windings
Hendecagons have four windings where the hendecagons overlap, and only one winding where they do not. This is perhaps a hint that hendecagons are particularly difficult to put into any pattern that repeats across a plane.
Every hendecagon winding is made from exactly 22 hendecagons.
Windings 1 through 3
Windings 1, 2, and 3 each have nine layers of petals, for 198 petals total. In Winding 2, many of the rows of petals are compressed tightly around the center.
Winding 4 has only five rows of petals, for 110 petals total.
As usual for odd polygons, the loosest winding has twice the number of polygons as there are sides to each polygon (22 polygons of 11 sides each).
