These Kolam designs are the ones that came out as a result of my experimentation with 5 X 5 matrix dots. The 5 X 5 matrix is my favorite because these are the ones that come in handy when you’re in a hurry and you have to draw the kolam, which is mostly the case.

I wanted to make a tutorial and hence chose to hand draw the designs on my notebook and give you pictures of each kambi kolam design step by step. So excuse me for the amateur looking hand drawings.

All the designs are drawn with the base of 5 X 5 matrix dots:
