33 Best Karva Chauth Mehndi Designs with Video Tutorial

Mehndi Designs For Karva Chauth – Karva Chauth is a one-day festival celebrated by Hindu women in Northern India, in which married women fast from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands.

Another story about the origin of this festival relates to the bond of feminine friendship. The fast is traditionally celebrated in the states of Rajasthan, parts of Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab. Karva is another word for ‘pot’ (a small earthen pot of water) and chauth means ‘fourth’ in Hindi (a reference to the fact that the festival falls on the fourth day of the dark-fortnight, or krishna paksh, of the month of Kartik).

Mesh, criss-cross pattern or netting is something that may look easy but it’s the complete opposite. Each line has to be straight and extreme care has to be taken while laying one on top of another. Which is why the results are almost always impressive. You can include this either as a part of the larger design or as the predominant element in a design like in this picture.
