Worked in a soft angora blend, Norah Gaughan's round-yoke pullover makes a strong pattern statement in two rich colors. She began designing the border by looking at textile patterns and based her motifs on the sinuous shapes in Moorish embroidery and Middle Eastern rugs. She hopes this pattern is a good example of a quote she keeps pinned to her wall, "The secret to success in all ornament is the production of a broad effect by the repetition of a few simple elements" (Owen Jones, The Grammar of Ornament).
