A pattern of rhombuses or squares located diagonally, and intersecting diagonal lines. The argyle pattern geometry decorated the kilts and plaids of the known Campbell Clan from Scotland. The name of the pattern originated from the name of the area of Scotland where the Campbells used to live at that time. Most often argyle pattern is used in knitted clothes. The pattern was popularized in fashion yet in the 1920s thanks to the British company ‘Pringle of Scotland’ producing luxury knitwear. The V-neck sweater with the argyle pattern is a classic British style symbol.
