Here's a good book. I got it from my library.

Shadow Knitting (http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Knitting-Vivian-Hoxbro/dp/1931499411/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1203657931&sr=8-1)

Here's a few patterns

Illusion knitting is very cool and there's a Linux scarf pattern I plan to do at some point.

knitty gritty did a great show on illusion knitting. The pattern is for a scarf, so you dont have to worry about any shaping and you can focus on the illusion! I have always wanted to try it but never got around to it. Good luck!
