I have long been an admirer of the work of the Pre-Raphaelites and this latest illusion knit makes use of the Proserpine painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

The completed illusion knit was knitted in DK yarn using 3mm needles. This has given a firm fabric that measures 66cm (26”) wide and 133cm (52”) high. Thicker needles, bulkier yarn or looser knitting will give a finished size that may be significantly larger than my version.

One of the photos 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!
