Why National Argyle Day?

The Campbell tartan is not only a sign of regional identity but also has strong ties to Scottish history. The design dates back centuries, with recent discoveries indicating it could have been created as early as 1650 A.D

The Argyll’s original clan symbol was adopted by Robert Bruce when he unified Scotland into one kingdom in 1371 AD – just two years before they won their independence from England!

Argyle is a popular and traditional pattern of knitwear that was first worn in England after World War I. It became known as “the Duke of Windsor’s Knit” because he often golfed while wearing it, which quickly spread throughout America due to popularity with this style element at such an early date- particularly considering how old some patterns can potentially get!

Argyle is a style of knitting that dates back to the late 19th century. It was created in Scotland and came into popularity among working classes due to its warmth, durability, and resistance against grease stains- all things people needed when they were out laboriously spinning their wool on machines powered by footfalls or water power!

The original pattern featured many vertical lines knit together at irregular intervals so you could easily see what your hands were doing yet it still looked complex enough not to be seen as garish; which made sense since this type of clothing was used to convey one’s work ethic and humility!

Argyle was all the rage in the 80s, making its way into clothing and home décor. It’s no surprise that it also showed up on blankets pillows wallpapers lamps shades among other things!

Payne Stewart, PGA champion and an all-around nice guy was loved by his fans for always wearing Knickerbocker AND argyle socks. He popularized the design even further!

Fashion designer Todd Oldham adapted the design to skirts, maxi dresses, and knitwear. This is because he believed it was more versatile than just lingerie or pajamas for women so they could wear it in different settings with other clothing items of their choice!

Today, we celebrate the Scottish for gifting us with an ingenious design. What’s more, is that it has so many uses and can work in really any setting – even if you’re just lounging around at home!
