This design can be drawn with 7 dots, 9 dots, 11 dots etc.  Maneuvering around the dots using curved lines comes with practice and the more we practice nearer to perfection we get.  That is the secret of these type of kolams.  Some of us may get intimidated looking at the final design but when we get it right we get a lot of mental satisfaction.  Can be drawn as part of our daily kolangal.

The next kolam uses 6 dots 4 rows then 4 dots on all sides.  A simple design too

Chikku kolam big step by step pics


There are two ways of drawing a big chikku kolam.  One with big dot grids or using small kolams and connecting them.

This kolam uses a common 5 by 5 dots chikku kolam

These type are also called kulam kolam.  Kulam means pond.  The centre of the design represents the pond and the four sides the steps that lead to the pond as we see in temples of Tamil Nadu
