Draw the following set of convex polygons with vertices in ascending and consecutive alphabetical order:
triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon and octagon.

Each vertex sequence begins with an A with subsequent (and all) vertices being 3 squares apart as defined by a chess knight's "L" shaped move or the queen's diagonal or orthogonal move.

No polygon is to have a common vertex with another. Should this occur then one or the other is not part of the solution.
