Inspired by a small covered bridge outside of Corvallis, Oregon built in 1936, The Harris Bridge Pullover has a lightly shaped body and bridge-inspired detail on the neck, forearm and lower edge (in place of ribbing).

Strategic stitches create visual interest with vertical columns and horizontal ridges. The result is a versatile garment that works up quickly and is interesting to knit. Faux seams at the sides create “bones” for structure and fit.

Worn over a denim dress, a crisp button-down shirt, or worn alone with your favorite jeans, Harris Bridge is a new classic that will pair beautifully with your existing wardrobe.

Harris Bridge is knit top-down and seamless with raglan sleeves. The classic boat neck and slight waist shaping create a timeless, flattering design.
