Cyrene is a beautifully fitted, tailored jacket which exudes sophisticated urban chic (and looks just as good in the country). The collar can be worn turned up (as on the image) 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. Once again, Kari-Helene has created a structurally interesting original which will delight knitters as there is so little to sew up.
