One way to do this is to draw two curves such as
y = +x^11 x = y^11
or
y = x^11 x = +y^11
where the first pair bends counterclockwise and the second pair bends clockwise. In either case, impose the condition x <= 1, y <= 1, or x^2 + y^2 <= 2 to limit the size of the swastika and give it reasonable proportions.
The exponent 11 may be replaced with any odd natural number. The higher you go the sharper the bends.
