16 pulli Pongal kolam thru images

Beautiful rangoli kolam designs with dots for Sankranti or Pongal

A very old and traditional kolam .  Really hats off to ladies of our country who could do such creative rangoli designs .  I am not surprised having seen the elder ladies in my family sit with us after dinner creating kolam designs. Fortunately there was not distraction in the form of television etc those days so time was utilised in such innovative ways.  

Place 8 rows of 16 dots for this beautiful Pongal rangoli
Then 8 dots 4 rows on either side to proceed with this kolam that can be drawn for Bhogi rangoli too
Mark the centres as shown - to expand this design use it as a beautiful rangoli for Sankranthi
Connect with lines , the next step,observe the pictures carefully
After all sides are connected
Next connect on all four sides for this 16 dots chukki rangoli

2nd side
3rd side

Connect the edges to get smooth curved lines for one of the awesome rangoli designs with dots 

Place dots and designs inside to complete the rangoli
When we add colours to this kolam as we usually do for Margazhi , Sankranthi , it is better to draw few colourful lines to enhance the beauty because filling with colour may obfuscate the beautiful design.
If you looking for big rangoli designs with dots for competition , traditional big rangoli with dots,  chukki rangoli big size this design may be useful.
