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!


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!

140: p10, k9, p10
142: k11, p7, k11
144: p11, k7, p11

Repeat these 144 rows two more times, then repeat rows 1-8.
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!

Very cool!   Cool

YOU ROCK for donating it to such a worthy cause.  I'm sure it will help raise a lot of money.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

That is a really cool idea to hide the design sorta... I've never seen that before. Neato! Cheesy

Making stuff is good for you!

That is beautiful! I would love to do illusion, I just have to figure out how to do it crocheting (I CAN"T knit!)

That will most definitely be bid on. It is wonderful!

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.
