Once again, it’s time to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, which takes place every year on September 19.
What better way to do it than with a tribute to that most piratical of knitwear patterns: arrrrgyle.
As I mentioned in me last argyle post:
Origins of argyle
What’s a celebration of piratical knits without a mention of that most piractical-sounding of patterns, argyle. Argyle is a pattern made of diamonds, often including an overlay of intercrossing diagonal lines. It derives from the tartans of Clan Campbell in Scotland. When knitted, argyle is usually done in intarrrrrsia. *Ahem.* Intarsia.
Bonnie, classy arrrgyle
This sort of arrrgyle will never go out of fashion. That’s not an opinion, you understand. That’s a personal guarantee. Anyone I catch retirin’ this arrrgyle …well, they’s just askin’ fer a fight.
