Worn by Magyar herdsmen in Hungary as far back as the Middle Ages, the Szur is a dramatic, mid-calf coat that was traditionally worn over the shoulders as a cape and lavishly decorated with cutwork felt appliqué. The geometric shapes of this garment make it an ideal canvas for other handwork techniques, as well as for handwoven fabrics. Pattern includes instructions for a traditional and contemporary version, appliqué decoration, and historical lore about the Magyar.
