The Argyle Sweater

This cheerful sweater with its pattern of diamonds in a diagonal checkerboard arrangement is thought to originate from Argyll in Western Scotland. However we can say for certain that Pringle of Scotland popularised the design in the 1920’s.
And it became the golfer’s favourite when the trend setter Duke of Windsor wore this pattern on his jersey and long socks whilst partaking in the sport.
The finer knits have the edge here for the classic look. But to get away from the golfing persona , Matalan’s chunky jumper  gives a more youthful take on the pattern.

And Quality Knitwear’s Solitaire vintage jumper brings quirkiness to the pattern . Plus a diamond catch at £36
