Tippudu muggulu with 9 dots images sans video

Sankranthi Tippudu muggulu | New Year muggu
The dot pattern is 9 dots three rows.  Then 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 dots on the top and  bottom.
The trick is simple draw the first pair of parallel lines above and below the row of 9 dots and connect them with curved lines.  Repeat this process in pairs of lines above and below the first pair of lines .  This part is easy but connecting them with curved lines moving our hand around the dots perfectly needs lots of concentration.  It is worth the effort because of the beauty of design.
A beautiful muggu design ,  I have shared elsewhere with 7 dots and 5 dots too
  This is with 9 dots with a number of images to give step by step approach because this design can be intimidating to some.
 So lots of images here to make it as clear as possible.  Actually we should start with lines above the top and bottom rows with 9 dots ( there are three such rows ) and start connecting both the ends with curved lines.
As we connect more and more parallel lines with curved lines moving gracefully around the dots there is a possibility that we may lose track and so we have to very careful.
 If we lose sight of where we were or are we will have to do it all over again.  However it is worth the challenge.
Traditional kolam like this one are not only awesome rangoli designs.  They also help us improve our concentration .
Also called gantina rangoli in Kannada , pinnal kolam ( in Tamil , there are other names in Tamil too like sikku kolam , neli kolangal etc )
Twists and turns represent a kolam called tippudu muggulu ,  this is how my sisters call it.  After all they were educated in Vijayanagaram near Vishakkapattinam in the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh state.
Such designs can be tried for important festivals like New Year or Pongal ( or Sankranthi ) .  For 30 days during Dhanurmasa we draw a lot of muggulu designs , daily .  This can be one of them.  If  this type of chukki rangoli ( another name ) is mastered then those with 7 and 5 dots can be drawn quite easily.  Though the post tile refers to video ,  I have not embedded it here.  It is available on YouTube and Facebook.   If you ask me about the best rangoli design in the world , I will vote for this.  Kolam is a kingdom ( rajyam ) and sikku kolam is the queen .  This kolam is the tiara on the queen's head.
