# Python Program to print pattern of letter C

Hello everyone! Welcome back to programminginpython.com, here in this post I am going to show you how to print a pattern of Letter C.

This is a continuation of the letter pattern printing series, in the previous tutorials I have explained the patterns of Letter A and Letter B.

Python program to print the pattern of letter ‘C’

#### Approach:

• Read an input integer for asking the sizeof the letter using  `input()`
• Check if the entered number is greater than 8,
• if yes, call the function `print_pattern()`
• else, show a message to enter a number which is greater or equal to 8
• print_pattern()
• here we only do two things, print star(`*`) and print space(` `), just writing conditions so the pattern of `*`‘s and ` `’s will display the pattern ‘C’
• following are 3 conditions for printing *’s
We have 2 loops, outer loop() for rows and inner loop for columns.
``````    # Outer for loop
for i in range(n):

# Inner for loop
for j in range(n + 1):
``````

1. the first line of alphabet
``i == 0``
2. last line
``i == n - 1``
3. first column
``j == 0 and (i != 0 and i != n - 1)``
• print ` ` in remaining all cases.

#### Program:

``````__author__ = 'Avinash'

# Python3 program to print alphabet pattern C

# Function to display alphabet pattern

def print_pattern(n):
# Outer for loop for number of lines(rows)
for i in range(n):

# Inner for loop for logic execution
for j in range(n + 3):

# Print 1st line
if ((i == 0 or

# Print last line
i == n - 1) and

# For more reasonable curve
j > 0 or

# First column
(j == 0 and (i != 0 and i != n - 1))):
print("*", end="")
else:
print(" ", end="")
print()

# Size of the letter
num = int(input("Enter the size: \t "))

if num > 7:
print_pattern(num)
else:
print("Enter a size minimum of 8")
``````
