Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

Please note, as of 7/23/2020, this pattern is no longer available on Ravelry. When Ravelry redesigned their website in June 2020, their new design immediately created accessibility issues for people. The redesign has caused migraines in some users after just a short exposure to the site, and for others, it has triggered seizures. The response from Ravelry over the past month has been incredibly defensive, with no assurances that the site will get fixed, or providing any information on how they plan to go forward. As such, I cannot in good conscious offer my patterns on Ravelry any longer. I do not have an alternative site set up, and I do not know when I will get to it. If you want to knit one of my patterns, do not ask me to send it to you - instead, I ask you send the powers that be at Ravelry a message asking them to honor the inclusiveness that they have called for for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ folx and fix their site so it is accessible for everyone.

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.
