Colourful Knitwear

19 January 2024

Dawn X Dare is the master designer when it comes to colourful knitwear. The Danish brand’s hand-knitted jumpers make a bold and bright statement and add a good dollop of fun to any outfit. Perfect for layering on cold winter days, or for when you still need something a little warmer when spring arrives, browse our pick of Dawn X Dare’s best colourful knitwear.

Arena stripe DS cardigan

With this knitted cardigan, you can really stand out thanks to its burst of colour and the fact that each creation is completely unique. Hand-knitted in mohair, in a beautiful bubble pattern, the Arena stripe DS cardigan is soft and takes care of the environment at the same time. Using only leftover certified mohair yarn, the eclectic pattern is a result of this no-waste approach, and each piece takes two to three days to knit by hand. We love it, Jo Whiley loves it, and we’re sure you’ll love it too!

Ellis jumper

The Ellis jumper is a great spring knit thanks to its sleeveless form and super light wool blend. The knitted waistcoat will still keep the chill out, however, with its high chunky neck. Like many of Dawn X Dare’s creations, the Ellis jumper is made with sustainable methods that means no two jumpers are the same. Hand knitted by Italian women from their homes in Tuscany, each jumper includes alpaca wool and nylon from recycled fishing nets. The colourful spacey print is a real show-stopper too, and will make any everyday outfit really pop.

Acacia jumper

If you like your knits colourful but understated, than the Acacia jumper will probably be right up your street. In a fading white-to-red bubble pattern, this super soft top has short sleeves and an open knit. It’s an excellent addition to your spring wardrobe. Hand-knitted in Italy, it fits true to size and is easily worn thrown on with a pair of your favourite jeans and trainers, or with a skirt and boots. This flexible piece should be part of every wardrobe!

Fantine jumper

Nothing says ‘bold’ like a bright block colour like the green of this fabulous Fantine jumper. Uber cosy, the chunky cable knit jumper doesn’t shy away from colour, yet it’s still classy and very wearable. A round neck and slightly puffed shoulder give it a gently feminine feel, while the overlong sleeves are great for keeping your hands warm if you forgot your gloves! Or roll them up for a effortlessly casual look. Sizes will vary because - like all the excellent knits on this list - the Fantine is handmade. But we recommend choosing your usual size. Also available in pink and cement.

Genova stripe jumper

The Genova stripe jumper is a real rainbow of hues. If you love colour - and we know you do - then this one is sure to delight. A unique mix of shades is brought together for every item, based on leftover yarn from other productions. That means it minimises waste and looks great at the same time. Fun and fabulous, you’re sure to make a statement when you’re out and about in this colourful knit.
