The images should be self explanatory.  The central pattern is called the Krishnan dindu or Lord Krishna's bolster.  After drawing this pattern draw the rhombus design on all four sides.  Connect them with set of 4 curved lines and then draw more curved lines in the gaps as shown in the pics.
These lines merge at the top giving a different effect to the kolam.  Add lotuses , spirals and flowers to complete the rongoli.
