What’s a cardigan-loving girl from the Northwest, who’s spent her entire life living within two hours of the Canadian border (and therefore is used to being able to wear sweaters nine months out of the year) to do now that she lives in Houston, an hour from the Gulf of Mexico?

Knit a shrug, of course!

Named after the county in Texas where I live, Harris was designed to be a simple shoulder cover, perfect for a little extra warmth in the most air conditioned city in the country.

Knit with a simple chevron pattern and twisted rib, Harris is lacy and feminine, classic and sophisticated.
