This illusion knit was inspired by a photograph of a Yorkshire Terrier provided by the dog’s owner.
It would not be possible to take on all the requests that I get for illusion knits but this one seemed like it would test my abilities in creating designs of this type.
The completed illusion measures 16” by 18” using double knit yarn, 3mm needles and my very tight knitting.
The piece is designed to be viewed from the side and so is intended to be used as a centre or panel for a bedspread, wall hanging or throw or as a front for a cushion or pillow.
The second photograph here shows the completed illusion knit 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!
