Demelza video tutorial – Flat Flower #1

I have seen many lovely flower squares for the first part of Demelza and today we start with part 2. We are making the first of two flat flower squares. In the original pattern designed by Cathering Bligh it is referred to as “Flat Flower #1”.

The Demelza blanket is designed by Catherine Bligh and is accompanied by a photo tutorial in English and Dutch. The design is inspired by the character Demelza from Poldark, a series of novels written by Winston Graham in the 20th century and adapted for television by the BBC.


Video tutorial

You can find the video link for the this week’s square, along with all other parts of the Demelza video series on my dedicated page here on my blog or on my YouTube channel.


Colorway

I am using 13 colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn with a 3.5mm hook. This week I believe I have managed to use all of my colors. I have made 4 squares each in 2 different colorways to come to the required 8 squares total. Here my colorway for this week.

  1. Bedankt weer voor de duidelijke video. En wat combineer jij de kleuren toch altijd mooi.
    Mag ik vragen hoe groot de vierkantjes worden?

  2. I came late to this – and don’t know how I missed it earlier….life has been so busy lately!
    But it’s lovely! and I so want to do this. the Squares are so pretty. I’m hoping I can afford to get this Scheepjes yarn when I return from an upcoming trip. I’ve worked with this yarn and just love it! You are so fortunate to be able to work with it on a regular basis. Dedri Uys introduced me to this yarn earlier in the year and I so fell in love with it.
    I’m trying to keep up and get all the patterns…and hopefully can start when I return from trip to Alaska – a place I’ve wanted to visit since I was a child!
