Argyle Pattern

We’re in the midst of a love affair with Argyle. It’s probably the symmetry and the crisp, clean lines; it’s so proper.
Argyle patterns have such a rich history going back as it is known to be used since to the 17th century. And while we must say that we love a good argyle sock, when we see it pop up in furniture, architecture, or a pretty knit sweater, we’re sold.
Here’s how we interpreted Argyle this week on Genue Lite…

Step 1

Choose color palette and display each thumbnail color by choosing background. Save each to Pattern Book.

Step 2 - 4 adjacent empty rectangles using shape function- saving without background
Step 2

Using shape function place 4 adjacent empty rectangles and save image without background to Pattern Book

Step 3- rotating image from Step 1 to diamond position, enlarging and saving without background
Step 3

Rotate image from Step 2 to diamond position, enlarging and saving without background to Pattern Book.

Step 4- adding saved colors- reducing size by pinching- and placing into each  of the 4 squares
Step 4- continued- image with all 4 colors placed within squares within diamond
Step 4

Place saved palette colors from Pattern Book and place by dragging into each of the 4 squares. Reduce size of color image by pinching and continue filling squares within diamond with all 4 colors. Do not need to be exact because next step outlines edges.

Step 4- continued- image with all 4 colors placed within squares within diamond
Step 3- rotating image from Step 1 to diamond position, enlarging and saving without background
Step 5- overlaying image from Step 2- black outlined diamond over  4 colors- save to Pattern Book without background
Step 5

Now overlay multicolor diamond image from Step 4 with black outlined diamond image created in Step 3. Save this image to Pattern Book without background.

Step 3- rotating image from Step 1 to diamond position, enlarging and saving without background
Step 6- image resulting from Step 2 outlined in bright pink using Shape -line function- saved without background
Step 6

Using black outlined diamond image, create another diamond outlined in bright pink. Use the Shape -line function to trace over outside edges and then save without background to Pattern Book.
