Hikeover was designed for a trek I took between two glaciers in southern Iceland. I wanted a warm and very lightweight pullover that could be compacted down in my backpack and serve as a pillow if needed. Knitting Léttlopi at a fairly loose gauge gave me the fabric that I wanted, the loft and fuzz of the Icelandic wool filling in the spaces in the stitches. I wanted a simple stranded yoke, which would be beautiful in almost any two colors you might choose, be it high contrast or so similar in value as to appear like a fade or mixing paint. Hikeover is knit bottom up with a very slight A shape, flaring slightly at the cast-on edge, narrowing slightly at the waist. Eliminating the shaping makes it suitable for men. –Mary Jane
