Sankranti rangoli designs / Sankranti muggulu
Some free hand rangoli designs that can be drawn for Sankranti muggulu with some steps are shown here. A basic floral pattern is drawn and developed further as shown in the images. It is not necessary to fill the entire rangoli with colours, by using the right combination of colourful lines we can get a very beautiful rangoli as is seen from the completed rangoli design
The next free hand rangoli for Sankranti is a birds rangoli design somewhat resembling a peacock. The images show the steps for this rather simple design. What starts as a geometric pattern is developed into a bird like rangoli design. Add patterns inside the rangoli with designs of our choice, sprinkle a few colours and this rather easy rangoli design for Sankranti is ready .
Free hand, kolam with dots most of them big are drawn. Pongal is in Tamil Nadu what Sankranti is in Telugu. My mother called it Peddha Pandaga or big festival. She used to draw a big kolam with 21 to 25 dot grid. So it is natural that Rangolisansdots has some relatively big kolam with dots for Pongal or Sankranti
The kolam below is again a common kolam with dots. Using sangu designs in the kolam we get a beautiful kolam. The dot pattern used is 15 to 8. The images in black and white show the steps
Another free hand rangoli for the Pongal or Sankranti festival in the images showing the steps.

Ratham muggulu are drawn for Sankranti and Rathasapthami ( a festival celebrated in some parts of India ).
This is a simple ratham muggu that can be drawn with the dot grid as shown. The pattern is obtained by drawing intersecting elliptical shapes as shown.
The dot grid is as shown in the first image
