7 #Crochet & #Knit Argyle Patterns for #Argyle Day!

Happy Argyle Day!

Don't you just love random holidays?  I found out about this one (and many others) on a blog called Holidays & Observances. No idea where this one originated, but to me, a textile pattern with its own day is a cause for celebration!  

In honor of this happy day, I've rounded up 7 Free Crochet & Knit Argyle Pattens AND I have created a Pinterest Board devoted to Argyle Crafts!

Wikipedia tells me that "The argyle pattern is derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell, of Argyll in western Scotland,[1] used for kilts and plaids, and from the patterned socks worn by Scottish Highlanders since at least the 17th century."  Maybe the Campbell's Soup can should have looked like this:


  • First is the  Argyle Bean Bag Ottoman / Pouf by Yarn Twins for Red Heart North America.  This is just super-adorable and it could be made in any colors!  
  • For a simpler project, try the Simple Argyle Scarf by Tricia Mae Keffer.  It's so cute!  

Machine Knitting

  • Although it's a Machine Knitting pattern, it's also a chart you could use to do crochet colorwork.  The 12-Stitch MK Argyle by Jeanne Helfrich was published in Goats and Hounds and is available as a free Ravelry download.


  • Damascena by Bethany Axtman was in Knitty, First Fall 2015, so you know it's a great pattern!
  • Double Diamond Argyle Hat by Cheryl Burke for Yarnbee is a cute, knitted beanie for anyone in the family.
  • Dapper Dame Fingerless Mitts by Sharon Moore for Deep Roots Dance is a cute (and it looks like a quick) way to practice your knitting colorwork.  
  • Intermediate Bag of Tricks by Tracy Leming is an adorable clutch pattern designed for people who want to learn double knitting.

You might know that I crochet a lot more than I knit, but that intermediate bag of tricks looks really cute.  I may try it (or replicate it in crochet)!
