Intertwined shape in Illustrator

I would like to re-create the following shape in Illustrator CC.

shape

Can someone please tell me how it can be done? I tried messing about with two circles, but couldn’t get them to stop being circles :/

Answer

  1. Create a six pointed star, and modify using Live Corners.

enter image description here

  1. Object > Expand then add new fill and stroke

  1. Ungroup the shape, and remove the centre line path that’s left over.

  2. Edit > Copy

  3. Edit > Paste in Place

  4. Object > Transform > Rotate, enter 30 degrees, and rotate

  5. Select All (CTRL+A)

  6. Select the Shape builder tool, and carefully merge the shapes so that one goes over, and one goes under the other.
