11 dots kolam - a collection of videos with 11 dots pattern from my video channel on YouTube
11 dots kolam or muggulu with 11 dots
The next rangoli in the 11 dot series, above. There is a heavy influence of free hand design in this rangoli, because that's my style and my blog rangoli-sans-dots. Place the dot template 11 to 1 (ner pulli). Draw the outermost four designs or motifs first. Next draw the central swastik like design. Connect the outer motifs to the central pattern with some designs connecting the dots. Use the remaining dots as shown in the video. Finally add some curved lines on the outside patterns. I have filled it with few colours blue, orange and yellow to get the rangoli design in the image. This can also be drawn as a free hand rangoli.Since it is a relatively difficult design, referring to the video in my channel may be helpful. Also, there is a simpler version using this motif in simple rangoli with five dots.

I think that this method may be easier that connecting the dots to form the rhombuses. The beauty of this design is star shaped patterns that are formed at the centre. I have added rhombuses on the sides of the rangoli as shown ( filled with white and pink colours ) we can also stop before this so that final overall picture of the rangoli will represent a hexagon.
The next rangoli is using 11 to 6 dot pattern - the theme birds and fledglings swimming around a floral pattern. As usual two images showing the steps
