Inspired by traditional Icelandic lopi sweaters, Daydreamer is knitted in the round. Sleeves and body are worked separately, then joined to knit the circular yoke. Raglan decreases and short row shaping are included for an optimal fit. Finally, the stranded chevron yoke is knitted.

A great project for stash busting with lots of possibilities. Use just 2 colors alternating in the yoke, create a gradient effect, a rainbow, or simply use colors of your choosing.

Pattern features charts for stranded colorwork and a schematic.
