For the love of Kolam! - Square Rangoli Pattern v2.0 (Written and Photo Tutorial)

Updated: Oct 10, 2023

Rangoli is an essential part of Indian festivals. Every special occasion has it's own unique style of rangoli. Ranging from the color filled Diwali ones to the ones made with flower for Onam! The simpler geometric ones from South India to the Mandala style of Sanskar Bharati.

Rangoli in the South is also know as a KOLAM and is usually a geometrical/geometrically inspired pattern, drawn at the entrance the home or temple at the break of dawn. Traditionally made by precisely dropping rice flour/white stone powder between one's fingers to lay in neat thin lines and curves on a flat surface.


About the pattern: This is my tribute to the very first Kolam I learnt to draw as a child. We have since learnt many more, but this is the closest to my memories of festivals from my childhood days. Here's presenting Square Rangoli as a crochet pattern by SaiASmi - Dreamz in Yarn!

As a highlight/ Tealight decor - it adds charm and color to any corner.

BONUS!!! the Pattern includes two PDFs - One Printer Friendly and second a Photo tutorial.
