How to draw a seven point star with one path in Adobe Illustrator

I am looking to create an SVG seven pointed star which is drawn with one path, similar to how you used to draw 5 pointed stars in grade school but scaled up to 7 points. I’ve included an image that shows what I mean.

I would also like the points of the star to be rounded, as seen in the image. The problem that I am currently facing (as seen in the image) is that I am able to draw the rough idea, but its completely asymmetric and doesn’t look too good. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

  1. Draw a regular 7 pointed star using the Star Tool.

  2. With the star still selected do View > Guides > Make Guides

  3. Make sure Smart Guides are enabled

  4. Using the Curvature Tool, draw the star making sure each corner snaps to the Anchors.
