Crocheted Argyle from the 1970's
One of my Sisters in Crochet, Alicia, asked me if I knew of a crochet recipe for the argyle pattern. I have hundreds of old knit and crochet books and magazines at home, so I started going through them. I thought, for sure, I had one! All I could find was a pattern for the "Persian Crosses" in this great old crochet sweater book by Sylvia Cosh. The Persian Crosses are beautiful, but not really a typical argyle pattern.

So, I started looking online and found Leisure Arts Book #284 for sale that appears to be from the 1970's. Of course, the actual recipes were nowhere to be found online. I suppose you get what you pay for!

It looks to me that the Leisure Arts argyle pattern is merely crocheted diamonds with top-stitching done after the diamonds are worked for the cris-crossed lines. What's your expert opinion? Inquiring minds NEED to know. Hey Faith, Sara-1, Drew, Pam G.? Do any of you have a pattern for crocheted argyle?
