I have this great book called Heisey Glass: 1896-1957 by Neila and Tom Bredehoft.  The Bredehofts have given alot of interesting information about different Heisey lines.  Regarding Lariat, they write:

“Lariat is the original name, although Heisey first referred ti the pattern as Gordian Knot……..The inspiration for this pattern was supposedly from the twisting of a heavy gold watch chain.”  (page 300).

I can honestly say that I would have guessed that a gold chain inspired the ‘loops’.
