The Knit List – Is it spring yet?

Winter, I’m bloody well done with you! Post Christmas, the cold goes from whimsical to damned insufferable and my wardrobe is just not cut out for the cold. I adore a cashmere sweater as much as any wasp worth her pearls but I feel it’s time for a little spring splendidness and there’s nothing quite so spring as pastels. Not exactly ground breaking but damn it if they don’t put a smile on your face.

 This ruffled beauty from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel is the sort of saccharine knitwear my winter wardrobe dreams of. SO so divine, I would go all out and pair this with a full leather skirt and pink lips for a subversive girly twist.


A little lemony freshness goes a long way on grey days Topshop have definitely injected a dose of sunshine into this white knit with a crocheted yellow overlay. The perfect partner to pretty up a a pair of jeans and boots.


Cable knits are definitely a cold weather essential but you can firmly stow memories of lumpy, baggy numbers to the back of your mind as there are a plenty of super fine, luxe available to keep you cosy and chic. This powder blue beauty from Needle would be perfect with a pleated midi skirt for a stylish play on textures.


Yes, more yellow (What can I say, I’m drawn to sunshine)! Whistles have long been a go to for knitwear – it’s always suitably luxurious without the added price tag and they always have the little details (such as this shoulder zip) that elevate a simple piece to something delightfully special. Wouldn’t this work a treat paired with a pencil skirt and a statement necklace.


I love love LOVE this Michaela Buerger jumper. Hand spun in a cotton & cashmere blend, each piece is completely unique and finished with some darling crochet detailing at the hem and crystal embellishment at the shoulders. Thrown on with a pair of cigarette trousers, bright pumps and a wide brimmed hat for a quirky yet chic ensemble.
