The charts that come with this pattern are driving me nuts.
Would anyone have a text version of this pattern? I'd be happy to pay for it or work out a trade.

Hi; I clicked on the link and it's not responding. I tried twice & keep getting a 'page cannot be displayed'. Can you repost it a bit differently or am I doing something wrong with this?

the charts are a little confusing, as they don't tell you which stitches are knit and which are purled, just what colours to use. weird.

cool pattern, though, if I ever have some free time again, I might make it for the illusionist I work for. He loves card tricks...what magician doesn't?

You know, my telepathy would work if I had something to READ!

Oops...sorry about putting the bracket on the end of the link. I'll edit my original and correct that.

Kadiddly, I'm glad to know I'm not alone in thinking the charts in this pattern are difficult. Right now I'm working on a skull illusion scarf and I'm beginning to understand how the illusion develops over 4 rows and that the knit and purl stitches are reversed on the pattern rows, however, I just barely understand the technique and translating that card illusion pattern has my brain spinning.

I find text patterns much easier to knit from, especially for illusion patterns. I guess I'll have to look at the card trick pattern again in January.
