These Crochet Portraits Are Unexpectedly Realistic

Crochet Portraits by Une

I’ve nev­er been great with cro­chet, so I am extra impressed with the work of Asesu­une, aka Une. Her work fea­tures cro­cheted por­traits of peo­ple that have a stun­ning degree of real­ism. Using a vari­ety of col­ors, she con­veys her sub­jects both laugh­ing and at rest. From lips to teeth to the crin­kle around the eyes, Une shows it all using rows of col­or and the same stitches.

Although Une has been cro­chet­ing for a while, this style of por­traits look like they’re rel­a­tive­ly new to her port­fo­lio. I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing where she goes from here.

The artist Une creates crochet portraits that have a striking degree of realism—something unexpected from the craft.
