The traditional rangoli with lines called padi kolam in Tamil or geethala muggulu in Telugu is also called kodu kolam .  These designs are for those who would like to call them that way.  
The first kolam above is explained in a series of images.  The patterns are drawn using sets of four lines.  I have not added any extensions like flowers , spirals , dots that we usually decorate with after drawing the kodu kolangal.  

The next kolam again using the standard square pattern and stars.  Above the stars we have some free hand decoration to make it a fusion kolam with lines and patterns

The next pattern in this series a simple kodu kolam - i.e drawn with mainly straight lines .  This type of design is quite popular for dwara muggulu or our entrance muggu.

The picture after completion, simple and beautiful isn't it.  Many viewers on YouTube ask me how I create designs.  Usually after dinner ,  when I have spare time ,  I sit down with a note book and pen or pencil and try various patterns and some of them come out as videos.  There are still many that are yet to be converted into a video.  After dinner is the time for creating kolam or for stringing flowers for the next day Pujan listening to devotional songs.

The next design is a variation of the previous one as the pics will show .  The connection of the horizontal and vertical lines is made differently as also the patterns at the four corners.
