8 by 8 dots rangoli 8-8 dots kolam


8 x 8 dots rangoli 

A common rangoli with dots , such square dot patterns with 8 dots are not common in Tamil Nadu.  I would like to share some of the designs.

This is slightly tricky, connecting the dots with straight lines,  the images should help make the steps easy for those who may need them.

Always it is advisable to draw the easiest patterns first so that the remaining dots can be used to create the more complicated ones.  Accordingly four butterflies are drawn at the four corners.

The first step of connecting the dots with straight lines.

The next step connecting the dots with lines parallel to the first.

This leaves two dots on four sides and four dots at the centre as in the picture above.

Connect the four outer dots with curved lines.

Butterfly like patterns can be replaced with floral designs also.

Simple elephant kolam | hathi rangoli using 8-8 matrix as reference

This is a beautiful rangoli that can be drawn for Diwali or Ganesh Chaturthi in the Puja room.
Marking the position of the elephants is important to draw the head , ear and the eye.  The rest is quite easy.

In the dot matrix start the first elephant at the 7th dot of 2nd row

After drawing all elephants we can shade inside with rangoli or we can choose a suitable colour to fill.  I have a mixture of used rangoli powder, the resultant  colour usually is suitable for elephant designs.  This is what I use for elephant kolam.

Clover leaf rangoli - ettu pulli kolam
