    Argyle Pattern

    The argyle pattern is a pattern consisting of diamond shaped rectangles on a background of different color. Often a second pattern is designed on top of the diamonds. This second pattern in most cases consists of diagonally crossing lines in a contrasting color. This overlap of designs is supposed to give the pattern depth and 3-dimentionality.The argyle pattern originates in the tartan pattern that has been used on Scottish kilts and socks since the 17th century. Today, argyle patterns are popular on sweaters and socks.
