This super versatile yarn is great in cables, colorwork and even heavier-weight lace projects. Take a peek at some of our bestselling patterns below for some extra inspiration and maybe, just maybe you’ll find yourself with a few balls of this magical yarn in your cart!
Swish performs wonderfully in cable projects! Not only is this yarn super soft and has a nice drape, it also has excellent stitch definition, perfect for textured stitches or complicated cables. Rhiannon is a great example of an heirloom-quality cabled pullover. This pattern is knit up in Swish DK in colorway Lost Lake Heather, but would look equally lovely in any of the heathered colorways.
Likewise, Swish DK really shines in the Rooted Cable Hat. I love a good, fitted beanie and this pattern is no exception. While this pattern is also knit up in a heather (Squirrel, my favorite!) it would look fantastic in a bright solid like Twilight or even Honey!
Dip into lace and eyelets with Andi Satterland’s Sunshower Cardigan! Worked in Swish Worsted Honey, this sweater promises to be a quick knit as well as an instant wardrobe staple. I love when a worsted weight yarn can be used in such a feminine piece without looking too heavy.
While not quite colorwork, the mosaic technique is absolutely stunning in this Blanket for Ivy pattern. I have a queue of friends having babies in the next few months, so I’ve been trolling through my list of baby patterns for inspiration. This is a stunning blanket, perfect for celebrating a new baby. It’s the perfect size to double as a play blanket once they get a little older, too! Swish is superwash, so no need to worry that the recipient will undo all those hours of hard work. This blanket can easily be tossed into the wash, and will come out softer and lovelier than before.
