Cyrene is a beautifully fitted, tailored jacket. The collar can be worn turned up or laying flat in a more traditional way and the lapels are created within the front and stand out by using distinctive stitch pattern. This creates a certain panache which is further enhanced by being knitted without side seams. This makes it a structurally interesting original which will delight knitters as there is so little to sew up.
