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.

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.
|Round||Colorway A||Colorway B|
|1||Moon Stone (801)||Moon Stone (801)|
|2||Moon Stone (801)||Moon Stone (801)|
|3||Citrine (817)||New Jade (819)|
|4||Coral (816)||Lilac Quartz (818)|
|5||Red Jasper (807)||Deep Amethyst (811)|
|6||Corundum Ruby (808)||Corundum Ruby (808)|
|7||Deep Amethyst (811)||Boulder Opal (804)|
|8||Canada Jade (806)||Canada Jade (806)|
|9||Moon Stone (801)||Moon Stone (801)|

With the squares from last time it is looking a bit like my flower garden; I also have lots of reds, yellow and purple shades in all my flower beds.

At this point I have used varying amounts of the all my colors, except for Boulder Opal of which I have used more than one ball.
