Margazhi is the tamil month which is known for the large kolams drawn on the streets at the break of dawn in state of Tamil Nadu in India. To complement the Thiruppaavai of the season, here are a few ‘large’ kolam designs for this Margazhi.
19 X 19 Straight Line Dots
5 rows of 15 dots. Straight line dots going on till 5 dot row.
15 to 1 dot. Straight line dots.
19 dots row at center – continue with intervening dots as shown.
3 rows of 29 Dots at the center. Continue with straight dots till row of three dots at the top and bottom.
5 rows of 16 dots
4 rows of 10 dots
4 rows of 4 dots (Straight line)
These kolams are quite advanced and need substantial time initially. But once you get comfortable with drawing pulli kolams, the process tends to get a bit easier. The most important step is to keep the dots with the correct number and maintaining a uniform distance between the dots.
