Description

You can have this spectacular art work hanging on YOUR wall. This illusion knit is big. That doesn't mean it is difficult to knit. It is just big and takes a long time. It has 300 stitches and 247 ridges (494 rows) of knitting.

Illusion knits are notoriously difficult to photograph. This is much more amazing in real-life. When you stand directly in front you see only two-colour stripes. The picture magically appears as you move around.

The illusion is based on The Three Graces, by Peter Paul Rubens. The original painting, which is now in Museo del Prado, Madrid, was painted around 1630.

You can use any weight of yarn but I would recommend using something fairly fine or the finished piece will be enormous. The pattern has various versions of the chart, including one intended for tablet users, to make it as easy as possible for you to make this without losing your place.
