Hey, I've just recently started to teach myself to knit, and I absolutely love the illusion scarves I've seen here. I looked up a lot of patterns and decided it didn't look too difficult.

Anyway... I tried to write my own pattern based off the ones I've seen, but it's not quite turning out the way I was hoping. I have a good general idea of how I'm supposed to stitch the scarf once the pattern is right, I ust don't know how to write the pattern.

If anyone has any experiences in writing illusion patterns, or knows of any links to a good tutorial, I would be forever grateful.
<---that's the image I'm trying to make a pattern of.

If anyone could help, I'll love you forever.
