    The snuggle is real: 6 new designer knitwear brands to love this winter

    A jazzy jumper is the easiest thing in the world to wear - just add jeans. And while the high street is full of beautiful budget-friendly knits, there is also some incredible craft happening at the high end of the market. Here are some recent designer discoveries that I think are worth trying, if you're on the look out for a spectacular 'wow knit' to wear this season... Lalo Tbilisi-based sisters Lalo and Nina Dolidze began hand-making their bright, braided cardigans in 2012 using traditional Georgian knitting techniques, and employing local craftsmen. As their label grew, so did their product offering, but the cardies - whether patchworked, plaited, or covered in shaggy fringing - are still at the centre of it all. Shipping to the UK costs £20. From £335, lalocardigans.com Cove Cashmere Friends Sarah Kocher and Jacqueline Berglund launched their Bishop’s Stortford-based knitwear label Cove in 2011. Its range is small and formed of classics, but the colours are vivid and seem to withstand a cold wash in the machine if, like me, you’re too lazy to treat cashmere properly. From £99, covecashmere.co.uk I Love Mr Mittens I’m not going to pretend that I understand the name. But this brand, founded by Antwerp-based designer Stéphanie Caulier, does some of the heftiest chunky jumpers I think I’ve ever seen. Each piece is handmade by community of independent knitters. From £440, at matchesfashion.com Allude Chic oversized hoodies are a specialism for Andrea Karg, founder of Munich label Allude. Wear yours loose with leggings to pad around the house, or half-tuck it into black jeans and add heels to go out for drinks. From £175, at allude-cashmere.com and net-a-porter.com The Knitter Nicole Leybourne's nan taught her how to knit when she was a child. But in June last year, the Australian designer found herself showing her handmade 'Ugly' sweaters to Grace Coddington at American Vogue - and now her own label is picking up steam. Each jumper takes around three eight hour days to produce and the results - a rounded silhouette and a myriad of colours - truly showcase the effort. From £520, at net-a-porter.com Cap Clashing panels are a design signature for Antwerp-based knitwear label Cap. Their cardigans often feature an asymmetric hem or a wrap-over front - consider this your new concept cardie.  From £220, at BrownsFashion.com
