Elvis Presley Illusion
With illusion knit portraits it is always difficult to find a face that is easily recognisable. Elvis Presley seemed to fit the bill but even with Elvis the different stages in his life and career leave his fans with their own very distinct images of him. Not all Elvis fans will see this particular image as the way they remember the singer. My apologies if this illusion fails to fit your personal image of Elvis.
The illusion, knitted using 3mm needles and DK yarn, measures approximately 70cm by 55cm (28” by 22”) and has been designed to be viewed from the side. It is therefore intended to be used as a centre for a bedspread or throw or as a wall hanging.
The final photograph here shows the illusion when viewed from directly in front.
September 2013 Update
The pattern now includes an extra chart intended for tablet users but others may find it helpful. You can view 20 ridges at a time and always be able to see the numbers across the bottom of the chart. Never lose your place again!
