In this C example, the printingPattern8 function allows rows & characters and prints the 8 digit pattern of a given character.

#include <stdio.h>

void printingPattern8(int rows, char ch);

int main()
{
	int rows;
	char ch;

	printf("Enter Character for 8 Pattern = ");
	scanf("%c", &ch);

	printf("Please Enter 8 Pattern Rows = ");
	scanf("%d", &rows);

	printf("Printing 8 Pattern of Stars\n");
	printingPattern8(rows, ch);
}

void printingPattern8(int rows, char ch)
{
	for (int i = 1; i <= rows * 2 - 1; i++)
	{
		if (i == 1 || i == rows || i == rows * 2 - 1)
		{
			for (int j = 1; j <= rows; j++)
			{
				if (j == 1 || j == rows)
				{
					printf(" ");
				}
				else
				{
					printf("%c", ch);
				}
			}
		}
		else
		{
			for (int k = 1; k <= rows; k++)
			{
				if (k == 1 || k == rows)
				{
					printf("%c", ch);
				}
				else
				{
					printf(" ");
				}
			}
		}
		printf("\n");
	}
}
