Pattern Description from A Fine Fleece: I chose the gansey motif to represent the Claiborne Pell Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in New England, which crosses Narragansett Bay to the island that houses Newport. …These pieces posed more of a design challenge than initially meets the eye. Once I chose a traditional gansey motif, I needed to be sure it fit within the sizes, gauges, and other restrictions I placed upon the project. … It was indeed a fun project and a great learning experience for me as a designer.“
