Programs for printing pyramid patterns in Python

Patterns can be printed in python using simple for loops. First outer loop is used to handle number of rows and Inner nested loop is used to handle the number of columns. Manipulating the print statements, different number patterns, alphabet patterns or star patterns can be printed.
Some of the Patterns are shown in this article.

    # Function to demonstrate printing pattern
    def pypart(n):
          
        # outer loop to handle number of rows
        # n in this case
        for i in range(0, n):

            # values changing acc. to outer loop

                # printing stars
                print("* ",end="")
           
            # ending line after each row
            print("\r")
      
    # Driver Code
    n = 5
    pypart(n)
