This is a classic Icelandic-style sweater, traditionally known as a lopapeysa or lopi.
Lopis are always worked in the round, so you will need circular needles, plus
double-pointed needles for the sleeves. If you are comfortable using the Magic Loop
technique you won’t need the DPNs.
The colourwork sections are worked using the stranded technique. When working a
colourwork round, strand the colour you’re not using loosely across the wrong side of
the work. However, unlike Fair Isle designs, which only use two colours in a round,
lopis often use three colours per round, as is the case in this garment.
