Free Argyle Patterns to Crochet and Knit

Today is Argyle Day! Argyle is a traditional pattern made of diamonds with lines through them. Argyle projects can be knit or crochet, and argyle designs can be put on any kind of project.

Argyle comes from a traditional tartan, or plaid, of one of the Scottish clans. It was popular in the 1920s and is often still seen on golf sweater vests and other golf-related clothing and accessories.

Argyle Projects

A great place to get started knitting argyle is with this Chic Highland Argyle Cardigan I designed. It’s designed for advanced beginners, and has tutorial videos to help you learn how to do the techniques to make argyle. You’ll use four colors of yarn: one for the background, two for the diamonds, and one for the lines.

Argyle patterns don’t have to be knit cardigans, however! You can add argyle designs on to all kinds of projects to crochet and knit to wear or for your home.

Planned Pooling Argyle Projects

Planned pooling is a crochet technique where colors in certain multicolored yarns can line up to make an intentional pattern. As long as you stitch carefully, the argyle shows up with just one skein of yarn instead of changing colors!

If you’ve never done planned pooling before, get started with the Total Beginner’s Guide to Crochet Planned Pooling.
