Great idea Viji madam.
The design looks good. Looks like there was a minor glitch at the top loop? Smile

Very Neat, Viji Ma'am.... looks like Chain stitch to me... correct me if i am wrong... Thanks for such a great Idea!!!

Wow, nice one Viji but you should have tried some contrast colour threads - the red thread and the background are almost the same so it does not throw out the kolam so well.. Maybe a black background would have been excellent..

Viji, Iam sure it is stem stitch with a contrast color thread wound over it!There is a specific name for it, which is not coming to my mind now! You can add some stones/chamkees in the place of dots.

This is called double chain stich. First finished in one colour and whipped with other colour.

This is surely an inspiration. Would like to repeat this motif on a saree, with probably a larger version on the pallu.
