"Sursa" Shawl - Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton


Pattern: "Sursa" Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Book #2
Yarn: NORO Silk Garden Color #84 & Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky "Limeade" (yarn and pattern purchased at Twisted Yarns in Spring, Texas)

I knit according to the pattern with the exception of the ruffle. Two strands of the NORO Silk Garden are held together and knit and I did NOT try to match the yarn strands -- I wanted the effect of two contrasting colors held together (which is what the pattern calls for). I did my ruffle increases on the knit side (and not the purl side directed in the pattern). I did more increases (M1 - invisible increases) in order to make the ruffle more "ruffle-y." Had I had access to some shocking green Cash Iroha, I would have used that instead of the Bulky Lamb's Pride. This is an excellent advanced beginner's project, and in my opinion, you should spring for the NORO Silk Garden. It's amazing to knit.

Ravelry details can be found here.


I have just found the Sursa Shawl--love it. Please tell me how I can obtain the pattern and appropriate yarns?


I am looking for the Sursa Shawl pattern. Can anyone help me?

Holli & Jo-Mary:
The book in which the pattern appears is listed above (along with a photo of the cover if you click the link). I recommend first checking your local yarn shop to see if they stock the book. If they don't, perhaps an online shop would be a good source.

Good luck and happy knitting!
