well there is the orginal way which you carry the color in the back or another way is when you just use a needle and stitch in front of the V (dont remember the technique's name) but then you go up and continue to "sew" ontop of the existing stitch. One last way i can think of is useing a crocheting hook and just go up there. THe "V"s wiill angle at a diffrent angel but it still looks like arglye from afar. Hope that helps.

its duplicate stitch i believe

argyle can be achieved either through stranded color work (like eunny jang's deep v argyle vest) or through the combination of intarsia and duplicate stitch.  duplicate stitch isn't hard, it's just a pain in the butt.  same with intarsia.  stranded color work is a bit more challenging, since you have to work with both colors at once (the easiest way to achieve this is by using both hands).  it was tricky for me to learn how to get the same tension with both colors.
