Lady with an Ermine
Inspired by the portrait painted by Leonardo da Vinci this illusion knit measures approximately 120cm high by 93 cm wide when knitted in my fairly tight style using DK yarn and 3.25mm needles. It is designed to be viewed from the side so is ideal for a wall hanging but could also be used as the centre piece for a bedspread or as a throw.
The final photograph here shows what you see when the illusion is 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!
