The 10 Best Spring knits
From sweet and sour grunge to elegant design staples, to high-end collector’s pieces, this selection whets the appetite
1. Jil Sander
This "Picasso" intarsia cotton knit was one of the most eye-catching pieces from Raf Simons' penultimate collection for Jil Sander – and that is really saying something.
The loose mesh sleeves and crew neck tap into the sports-luxe trend that's big this summer, while the masculine loose fit and longer-line hem will ensure it remains chic.
Sweet colours that stop short of saccharine, a loose-weave knit and cuffed sleeves are design details which will make this sweater just right for the warm weather.
4. Meadham Kirchhoff
Making eyes at someone will never be the same again with this cartoonish intarsia design set on a checkerboard background of candy hues.
Two-ply ribbed Scottish cashmere gives a lovely luxury feel to this wardrobe staple. This feminine coral version is just the thing to warm up your day.
6. Chinti and Parker
The soft grey on this shrunken design is a neutral colour while the contrast heart detail means you can wear yours on your pockets rather than your sleeve.
7. Jonathan Saunders
Saunders's summer collection earned him plaudits – not least for its Miami Beach-inspired palette of washed-out acids and pastels. This textured knit ticks those boxes.
This soft sweater from the Swedish brand's resort collection is a breath of fresh air that will look great teamed with a leather biker jacket.
9. Asos Collection
If choosing one hue with which to nail your candy colours to the mast this season is proving too tricky, this stripy number provides a sweet solution.
Three-quarter-length sleeves and colour-matched buttons create a sense of neatness which makes the neon hue of this cotton cardigan really wearable.
