kolam for Pongal- Sankranti muggulu - rangoli designs

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 .

 Pongal is a time for celebration, joy .  When ever we have festivals and festivities we bring out our joy and happiness through various ways.  Art is one of them.  On Pongal day we have colourful kolam adorning the streets.  Actually the gallery of kolam in a street appear as if there is a colourful carpet in the entire street.
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

The next kolam muggulu is also with 15 to 8 dots ( idukku pulli ) again a common kolam.  After placing the dot grid draw the floral pattern at the centre and on the six sides.  After drawing the floral petals draw the lamp like shapes - three numbers as if they are meeting at a point.  Add a few colours to get a beautiful muggu with dots for Sankranti - it is quite easy too.

Ratham muggu for Sankranti or chariot rangoli


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
