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.
This sample is worked in WATERshed in the color "Granite". Amy loves Watershed, and worked this sample up at 17 stitches and 26 rows to 4'' (10 cm).
