What to make with Magpie Fibers Swiftcurrent

A collage of variegated yarn with complementary orange and purple.

One of the things I love about Magpie Fibers is that Dami has so many colors that work beautifully together. When I first saw her yarn in person at the very first Knot House Maryland Sheep & Wool Indie Pop-up back in 2015, I was struck by how cohesive her color palette was.

Swiftcurrent, Dami’s Glacier National Park-inspired colorway for the latest installment of Knitting Our National Parks, is no exception and I easily found at least two colorways that would look perfect with it: Mesa and Linger.

I decided to put together some pattern suggestions for those pairings. Some use two and some use all three. And a couple are designed by Dami herself!
