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.


S (fits up to a 36” bust / 16” back)
M (fits up to a 44” bust / 19” back)
L (fits up to a 52” bust / 21” back)
Note: measure across back only. Do not measure from inside armpits.

Materials Needed


365 (480, 595) yards of worsted weight yarn
Shown in Madelinetosh Vintage in the Graphite colorway


US 5 24” circular needle
US 6 24” circular needle
or sizes needed to obtain gauge


One stitch marker
Waste yarn
Tapestry needle


20 sts and 26 rows = 4” in Stockinette Stitch with larger needles

Harris is available for $4.50.

    Harris is also one of my last names! You look lovely, and I love the detailing on the back of this! I would love a really loose stretched out looking sweater! Love and miss you!

    I am putting this in my Ravelry queue. Gotta get a few other projects finished first. Beautiful work, and I must say you are looking very well!

    Lovely shrug. Having problem finding pattern for Multnomah shawl. Link not working. Is there another way to get pattern?
