Norah Gaughan looks for unusual ways to structure her sweaters. For this not-so-traditional pullover in a soft alpaca wool/blend, she uses a series of organically shaped circles, each worked separately, to form a round yoke. Norah turns to patterns found in nature for many of her design elements; the radiating spokes of her knitted motifs might reflect a flower's petals or a spider's web.
