Video tutorial Demelza – Flat Flower #2

Today is a happy for many as I know that many of you have been waiting for the release of the next part of our Demelza blanket. Wait no more, as today we start with part 3 in which we are making the second flat flower square in the blanket. In the original pattern designed by Cathering Bligh it is referred to as “Flat Flower #2”.

The Demelza blanket is designed by Catherine Bligh and is accompanied by a photo tutorial in English and Dutch. There is also an update available with UK terms. 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.

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 lovely colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn with a 3.5mm hook to make my Demelza blanket. Similar to last time 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) Citrine (817)
2 Moon Stone (801) Citrine (817)
3 Lemon Quartz (812) Lilac Quartz (818)
4 Canada Jade (806) Corundum Ruby (808)
5 Red Jasper (807) Deep Amethyst (811)
6 Moon Stone (801) Moon Stone (801)
7 Boulder Opal (804) Boulder Opal (804)
8 Citrine (817) Citrine (817)
9 New Jade (819) New Jade (819)
10 Moon Stone (801) Moon Stone (801)
11 Amazonite (813) Amazonite (813)

I had some indecisive moments regarding the center two rounds of this weeks squares. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use a Moon Stone or Citrine center for colorway A and likewise for colorway B. Hence they are a bit mixed with some colorway A squares starting with Moon Stone and some starting with Citrine and vice versa for colorway B. If you are following my colorway, just go with the flow and use the Moon Stone and Citrine centers as you like.

My flowery blanket is really starting to look nice. My squares go well together and I really like how it’s all coming together.
