Yarn Portraits by Jo Hamilton

Portland, OR-based artist Jo Hamilton crochets portraits of her friends with yarn based on photographs. Using painterly techniques, Hamilton is able to include details like depth and shadow with different colors. Her grandmother originally taught her the craft of crochet when she was growing up in Scotland, and now uses it to make her large-scale works of art. Each of her portraits are time-consuming to make and are all done by hand.
