kolam designsThis post will have a pot-pourri of kolam designs, kolam without dots(kolam-sans-dots), using single line, and those that can be drawn with dots and free hand that may be useful particularly for Margazhi kolams (There are many such designs that belong to this category particularly when the number of dots is less than 15 ).
simple kolam with simple designs
Now, for a change a rangoli with only white lines but using the theme swastik. The swastik design at the centre has two overlapping patterns. The rangoli grows or expands from this. The arms of the swastik extend further to form a beautiful pattern at the centre. The curved lines at the centre between the arms add to the attractiveness of the design. Floral patterns are drawn around as shown and the entire design is covered with a single line border. The plain and white rangoli is as attractive as a colourful one.
Another simple rangoli design in the image below. Adding a few colours enhances the appearance of the rangoli not that it is not attractive when it is left white and plain
