This is a unique type of chikku kolam .  Here we use a single line that goes around the dot grid and gets connected to where it started and hence the name.  Just by looking at a completed design it may be difficult to decipher the puzzle that it appears and probably one of the reasons why it is called so.  As is the norm in this blog,  I have give few images to show the intermediate steps to make it easy to understand and learn.  I have used a 11 by 1 dot grid.  This kolam can be drawn with 9 , 7 dots and bigger dot patterns also.

Among the birds peacocks are one of the most fascinating , naturally we try to incorporate these designs in our rangolis.  Since rangoli is a very simple daily art , what we draw will not have the intricate and finer details of other forms of art.  So what we do it draw the crown for the peacocks and decorate the tail.  This is a white rangoli and hence cane be thought of to represent the beautiful white peacock.  We can also fill the kolam with colours for festivals like Diwali, Pongal, Navartri or draw a white kolam for our daily vasal kolangal

Such beautiful and intricate kolams can be drawn for Karthigai festival or vratham because mayil is considered as vahanam of Murugan.  We can also draw for Bhogi, Mattu Pongal and Kanum Pongal when medium sized rangoli designs are displayed.  I have used colour rangoli powder directly instead of drawing with white and filling with colours.  For this the quality of colour kola podi should be good .  I get it from Nagpur , there we get very good quality rangoli colours.

For using colours directly ensure that they are not flour like then they will not flow properly.

The beauty of this type of kolam is drawing the curved lines that move around the dots gracefully with neat lines and curved lines.  We should draw the entire kolam with confidence to get beautiful designs.  The secret is very simple.  It is just practice.  It must be cliche but that is the truth.  Practising many kolams will make us better and better in this art.  Practising the same kolam on a notebook with pen or pencil several times or with a  chalk piece on floor will increase our confidence in drawing the design because they are extremely tricky most times.  The more confident we are with the design the more beautiful our lines will be.  The number of breaks in the lines should also be minimum 

Usually drawn with white kola podi ,  I have tried with colours and patterns with pencil in this blog post.
