I shouldn't think it'd be that hard. Just take a simple two colour design, put it on knitter's graph paper, and then blank out every other row.

Would that work?

Ziza has pretty much got it right. After i copyed out the graph in the book (so i could rule threw the lines as i had done them ) i pretty much knew how it works. pretty easy.

I'm working on my own illusion pattern too. I'm really excited about it but not sure if it will work - right now I'm knitting one sequence with my acrylic yarn before I start with the Lamb's Pride I bought for my husband's birthday present...

I figured this out recently.  Here's a good site:

http://heidisknittingroom.com/IllusionKnittingHowTo.htm

When I say you put the "pattern" there, I mean the part that's going to stick up.  Alright:

1) Draw out your pattern how you would normally on graph paper.  Use actual numbers of stitches you want and such.

2) On a new piece of paper, draw it but space it out by putting each patterend row 4 rows apart.  So basically, you do the first row of pattern, then leave three blank rows, then second row of pattern.

3) Now you have patterns on rows 1, 5, 9, 13, etc.  Between each of those patterend rows there is a middle row (rows 3. 7, 11, etc.).  Now put the negative space there in the pattern.  

Look at the pattern on the site, and in the SnB book for how this works.  It's really much simpler than it seems once you understand how it happens.  I made an illusion thing just this week, and I'm planning to make the alien scarf in SnB soon, it will be most excellent.

I designed my own illusion scarf - it's for my Boston-Bruins-obsessed husband...

Here's the illusion:



It's now about 3 feet long, with stripes throughout - the illusion will appear at each end. I can't wait to finish it (it's taking forever).

Whoa... that's really helpful.  I'm inspired.  Now I just have to find out something to do with this soon-to-be-newfound skill...
