Braids Cardigan Swatches

I finished the swatches for the Braids Cardigan I am planning to knit for myself:

Braids Swatches Posted by Hello

The yarns are:
1 - Cascade 220 color Olive
2 - Berroco Softwist color Red
3 - Berroco Softwist color Blue
4 - Butterfly Super 10 color Maroon
5 - Berroco Softwist color Ginger

I like the color of the Ginger Softwist the best. I like the drape of the Softwist as well but the yarn is not fun to work with. It splits like the dickens. I really like the way the stitches show up in the Cascade 220. That's the only sample I did with 100% wool. I didn't like the color I swatched in the Cascade though. At this point I think I might have to go with the Cascade (or another basic 100% wool yarn) but find a different color. Maybe I'll hop over to Knitpicks and check out some of their worsted weight wool. Maybe I'll try this yarn instead!

Your swatches are gorgeous! Thanks for checking out my blog. I would LOVE IT if you could tell me how and what you did. I can do a lot of stuff, but figuring this out is killing me!
