More than beautiful garments, these pieces offer fun and engaging patterns and constructions that will broaden a knitter's understanding of what knitwear can be.
Norah Gaughan is an American hand knitting pattern designer.
She was born January 30,1961 in New York City. She is the younger child of Phoebe Gaughan, artist and needlework illustrator, and Jack Gaughan, illustrator of fantasy and science fiction books and magazines. Gaughan first learned to knit at the age of 14, while she and a friend avoided a heat-wave by staying indoors for the day, knitting to pass the time.
As a freelance designer, she published designs in "Vogue knitting" and "Woman's World" magazines and the magazines and single pattern flyers of Reynolds and Bernat yarn companies.She also worked for Adrienne Vittadini, JCA Yarns, and was the design director at Berroco Yarns from 2005 to 2014
She studied Biochemistry and Art at Brown University and, remaining in Providence, Rhode Island, was associated with hand knitting designers Deborah Newton and Marjery Winter.
Although previously known to hand knitters for her knitting patterns, following the 2006 publication of her book Knitting Nature: 39 Designs Inspired by Patterns in Nature she became internationally known.
Her designs are often based upon the mathematical expressions underlying natural patterns as opposed to naturalistic visual impressions. They are complex in origin but not necessarily so in execution or appearance. She has an innovative use of texture and combination of stitches, often creating new knitting stitches for her designs. Her work is noted as very recognizable on sight;
