I'm planning to go to the Faroe Islands next August after visiting Iceland.
I was wondering if hitchhiking is permitted anywhere in the Faroe Islands. I've checked the hitchwiki website, but it doesn't say if is legal or not.

The Faroe Islands are officially part of Denmark (albeit self-governing).
According to Wikivoyage, it's legal to hitch in Denmark, apart from on motorways:
Destination boards are recommended. For safety reasons, it is illegal to hitchhike on the expressways, so it is better to use the on ramps and service areas. When crossing by ferry, try to get into a car that already paid for the ticket.
This is backed up in this table of countries which states that it's generally rare, but easy, legal and you're not usually expected to pay for the ride.
