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 3 mm needles and DK yarn, measures approximately 70 cm by 55 cm (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. I used approximately 280 metres (310 yards) in each of two colours of DK.

The pattern includes several versions of the chart including one intended for mobile devices.
