Cyrene Jacket knitting pattern
Cyrene Jacket has a truly unique construction that will keep you engaged at all times! the border is worked first and the stocking stitch body is worked inside the border to "fill in" the border. The design is intended to mimic a tailored tweed jacket and this piece easily doubles up as both cardigan and jacket depending on the weather. All pieces are worked flat. The body is worked all in one whilst sleeves are worked separately and sewn in. This knitting pattern includes schematics, measurements and fully written instructions.
