Yours. (Harbor Island is a CustomFit pattern and will be generated to fit you specifically.)
This pattern is available from customfit.amyherzogdesigns.com for $12.50.

Harbor Island is built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Harbor Island pattern is written specifically to your choice of gauge and size.

Harbor Island was Lauren’s sweater from our collection of the fall 2014 Make, Wear, Love retreat designs. It’s very much Lauren’s style - cozy, textured, and relaxed. The ultimate throw-it-on cardigan in a snuggly relaxed fit. The deep V neckline and long sleeves pair with the longer length to make a balanced silhouette; Lauren added ribbing at the top of her sample to better flatter her body type. (Instructions for this optional ribbing are included at the beginning of each CustomFit Harbor Island, should you want to add it to yours as well.)

The sample is shown in Indigodragonfly’s Sad Lester DK, an utterly gorgeous 100% BFL yarn that knits like a dream. It’s wooly, a little on the gruff side, and glorious to wear. We used the color “The New Black”, but Kim produces gorgeous, saturated shades - so find a color that speaks to you!

If you’re using this yarn, you should aim for a stitch gauge of around 6 stitches to the inch to get a fabric like the one shown. This design works very well in yarns of almost any gauge, though. When choosing your own yarn, aim for a “woolly wool” with nice stitch definition.

(One quick note on yardage in CustomFit patterns - the yardage requirements listed here are based on my preferred gauge for the recommended yarn. And while I’ve given approximate quantities for standard size sweaters, CustomFit will make your pattern in the size and gauge of your choice. It’s pretty tough to give yardage requirements for any possible combination! If you’re not using the recommended yarn, and/or you’re not a standard size, I recommend Hannah Fettig’s amazing app, stashbot, to get a sense of your yardage requirements.)
