Tramontane by Amy Herzog

Is there anything more classic than a crew-neck pullover? Tramontane is a basic sweater that's perfect for just about anyone. It can be made in any gauge you like, for any person you like, and is a great basic pattern to dress up if that's the kind of knitter you are.

I worked our Tramontane in an exceptional woolenspun yarn from the historic, exceptional folks at Harrisville Designs, and I love the way the incredibly subtle color blending looks with this classic silhouette as a canvas. The sweater has 1x1 ribbed trim everywhere, with long sleeves and an average sweater length.

Jackie is wearing the sample with a woman's average fit.

Tramontane is a straight design, so your sweater pattern will have no waist shaping. The hem and chest/bust will be equal. You can use any measurement set to create this pattern.

Tramontane uses the following design choices:

  • Style: pullover
  • Silhouette: Straight silhouette
  • Length: Medium-hip length
  • Sleeves: Full-length tapered sleeve
  • Neck style: Average-width crew neck
  • Neck depth: 3½"/9 cm below shoulders
  • Finishing:
    • Hem edging and height: 1x1 Ribbing, 2"/5 cm
    • Sleeve edging and height: 1x1 Ribbing, 3"/7.5 cm
    • Neck edging and height: 1x1 Ribbing, ¾"/2 cm
