A kolam with four Tulasi Vrindhavans.The base of the Tulasi Vrindavan gets extended beyond the dots which isn’t calculated while placing the dots. This kolam is drawn with 8×8 matrix.
The dot pattern is given below. You may download and print for practicing.
Start the kolam from the corner dots. First draw squares at the corners. Now with the four squares, draw two lines. One just below to the square touching its corner and another a offset of the first line. Now draw the same on other corners.
Step 3 Now draw a line from centre of the upper base which extends upto the centre dots of the kolam. Add the twigs of the plant by joining the dots on the centre line to the adjacent dots.
Step 4 Draw the base of the Vrindhavan by extending lines downwards. This extension is freehand and if you want you may place dots for marking. Add some detailing work on the pillar and finish the kolam.
