I love the idea of the illusion scarf, but aliens aren't really my thing.  If I were to make a new chart (of a llama, haha, I'm such a nerd), would it look right if I did it in normal proportions on knitter's graph paper?  Or do you have to distort it in order to account for the fact that you have to look at the image from an angle?  I'm not even sure if that even makes any sense. xD

I'm working on an illusion scarf now and the pictures look pretty normal on the graph paper.  So no I wouldn't say they're skewed at all.  So you could probably draw out whatever you want on the paper and it would still come out OK.

If you use knitters graph paper, there will be no distortion whatsoever when you knit it, the elongated boxes in the graph make up for it Smiley

I would like to make an illusion scarf from a Cincinnati Bengals Logo. Any help?

I made a chart (non-illusion) for the White Sox logo--the best thing to do is to draw it out so it's the correct size for the graph paper (or print it out), then slide that sheet under the graph paper and try and trace it best you can, you'll of course have to "pixellate" it as you go along at parts but having the "unpixellated" version right there is a big help.

I want to make my own chart too, so I read up on Google and found this: http://www.jigsawknits.co.uk/illusioncreate.html

I hope that helps!
