#### 10 pulli kolam for Tamil New Year

Decorate with a kaavi border for festivals and Fridays. The box like pattern using dots is the traditional design. The outer free hand designs have been added by me.

The dot pattern is 10 dots 2 rows , then 8 to 2 dots

Draw a pair of horizontal lines outside 2 rows of 10 dots

Similarly vertical lines outside the 2 columns of 10 dots

The boxes have been formed

Connect the centres of each side of the squares as shown in the picture below

Extend straight lines on all four sides of the squares to divide into two and four parts

This is simple geometry in kolam

These type of designs are called the kalyana medai

Decorations outside the basic pattern with spirals and flowers is according to our imagination

A border with a line around the designs on all four sides

We can use this as a daily rangoli also if we are looking for some medium sized rangoli for Tuesday or Friday.
