I made this AIDS Awareness scarf for a silent auction to raise money for my local AIDS Walk.  It was my first time trying illusion knitting, and my first time making up my own pattern for a project.  I really like how it turned out; now I just have to hope someone bids on it!  

Hmmm... just looks liked a regular old striped scarf:


But wait!  What is this strange magic?:




The auction is Tuesday; I'll let you know what happens!

~vasetthi

EDIT: Ok, so I have no idea how to post a chart, so I wrote it out.  A couple things to explain: the lines in black font are knit in black yarn, the lines in red font are knit in red yarn (you can obviously change the colors), and every odd numbered row is knit, straight up.  I included the first few odd rows to get you started, then left them out for ease of reading.  Following this pattern will make ribbons that are pretty large & in charge.  I'm sure you could play with it and leave out some lines to make them smaller, if that's what you'd like.  Please let me know if you have questions; I'm not always such a good communicator.  Thanks for your interest in this pattern - I'm glad people are using their knitting skills for good and not evil!

142: k11, p7, k11
144: p11, k7, p11

Repeat these 144 rows two more times, then repeat rows 1-8.
BO.
I made tassles by cutting pieces of yarn in pieces of about 14 inches each, then took 3 of one color, folded them in half and pulled the loop through the scarf with a crochet hook.  Bring the ends through the loop and pull tight.  I alternated red and black along the edge.

Happy knitting - I'd love to see your FOs!

That's great!  I'm sure you won't have any trouble getting someone to bid on that.  All the non-knitters (and most of the knitters) will be amazed.

Thanks so much everyone!  serialdeviant, illusion knitting looks like plain stripes when viewed head-on, but forms a pattern when you look at it at an angle.  You do this by forming the pattern with purls, because they're bumpy and knit stiches lie flat.  You always knit on the RS, and work the pattern on the WS.  So, for example.  I would do a row of k in red, then a combo of purls and knits on the WS in red, then to a k row of black, then the opposite of the p/k pattern I did with the red row. 

I would not mind sharing the pattern.  Right now, it's kind of scrawled on 4 different sheets of graph paper, and probably not readable to others.  I will clean it up and work on getting it posted.  Thanks for the compliments!

Ah, I get it. It's like when I was a kid and wrote things using tall skinny letters that were much more readable when viewed a an angle - illusion knitting is just more... intelligent about it.

Cool!

I just learned this concept of illusion knitting last week and the first pattern I wanted to make was going to be a pink/white scarf for breast cancer awareness... seeing your project, now I REALLY want to attempt it!

Alright, so the auction was yesterday.  It was just in my workplace, so not a lot of people participated.  The scarf did get $25 though, which is pretty good for this auction!  I'm crazy busy right now with work and my friend's wedding, but I will definitely get the chart is a form that makes sense and post it as soon as I can.  I can't wait to see the pink and white scarves!

The easiest thing to do is do a "print screen"  Open the program in your computer, press the "Print Screen" button.  Then, go to Paint, press Ctrl+V.  Crop to remove anything that doesn't need to be there, then save the paint picture.

Ok, so I'm sorry I suck.  I've been really busy getting ready for the MN AIDS Walk, which is what the money raised from this scarf went to.  It was Sunday, and it went really well!  We raised over $600,000!  So, now that things are getting back to normal, I will definitely figure out how to post the chart.  I'll work on it tonight for sure.  Thanks for the tips on how to do this.

You always knit on the odd rows, which are the Right Side (RS).  All of the pattern stuff happens on the Wrong Side (WS).  I just though it would be WAY too long if I included all the odd rows, since they're all the same (k).  Sorry it's confusing!
