Silhouette portraits have been popular since the 18th century before the advent of photography. It was the cheapest and easiest way to capture the image of a loved one and to this day they have a unique presence as art pieces in the home.

This elegant couple is easy and quick to knit and adds a bit of Victorian nostalgia to any space. A good project to practice intarsia!

One ball each of Drops Fabel in MC and CC is enough to make both silhouettes.

If you use these charts in another way, please link your projects here, I’d love to see :)
