This playful take on an argyle texture pattern was inspired by a sweater worn by the fictional Randall Pearson on NBC's This Is Us: for whatever reason, I couldn't get that sweater out of my head. Around the same time, Emily of Emily C Gillies Yarn debuted her NSW Tweed base, and it was a perfect match.

The Randall has a relaxed fit, with a touch of slouch; the pattern includes suggestions for modifying the length.
