Classic through and through, the Argyle pattern was originally derived from the tartan worn by the Clan Campbell of Argyll in Western Scotland, and is super famous thanks to its diamond motifs! It looks fabulous here in a cardi knitted in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, and would be a gorgeous addition to any smart outfit for boys or girls!
