January 8th is National Argyle day! Argyle is a knitting pattern shaped like diamonds. It is common on socks, vests, and sweaters, and was very popular in the early 20th century to wear while golfing.
Argyle became fashionable in England and the U.S. after the World War I. The pattern was identified with the Duke of Windsor, who used the pattern for golf clothing. Later, golfer Payne Stewart won the U.S. Open and PGA championship while wearing argyle socks. The pattern is still in use—on and off the golf course—today!
