This kolam uses 9 dots 3 rows, 7 dots 2 rows and 3 dots one row.  A somewhat tricky kolam , so I have added lots of pictures to show the steps clearly ( I hope !)

The next  kolam uses 9 by 1 dot pattern.  It consists of drawing a pattern four times and they are not connected to each other.  Most kambi kolam have bilateral symmetry.  i.e they are symmetrical when viewed from two planes.

Kambi kolam are the best kolam designs for our daily vasal kolam because once we practice we can draw small and even some relatively big designs quite easily and in very little time.  An important factor to be taken into account since time is a premium for us nowadays

Next kolam is 9 by 9 dot design
