This is a fusion kolam with chikku kolam as base and borders on all four sides taken from padi kolam
The dot grid used is 13 to 1

There are many methods to draw these kolam .  The more the continuous the lines are or in other words the lesser the number of patterns the design is split into to complete the kolam the more beautiful it is.  The joints will not be evident.

The next step is using the outer dots

As we near completion of the design,  it becomes more and more beautiful.

Also called melika muggu ,  these traditional kolangal are beautiful and unique because the lines go around the dot grid.  They can be challenging also.  I have added elsewhere a small chikku design that is quite challenging .  At first it appears difficult and it is difficult to master it too.
