~@~ These instructions are specifically for the breast cancer awareness pink ribbon.  You will end up with a pink ribbon on a white background, but of course you can substitute other colors as desired!

~@~ If you don't have a color printer, I recommend marking your pattern with a highlighter so you don’t forget to do your color changes!

~@~ Do not cut the yarn as you switch colors – just carry it loosely up the side.

If you are unfamiliar with "illusion" or "shadow" knitting....the premise is that head on, your project will look like little stripes...but from an angle, a magic picture will appear! 
   I've discovered that this is an extremely addicting technique (kids LOVE it!) and also it is not as easy to graph an illusion pattern as it is a "regular" one.
