If you have been struggling to keep up the pace with our Demelza blanket, you will be very happy to hear that this part consists of only 4 squares. Today we start with part 4 in which we are making the outer corner squares of the blanket. In the original pattern designed by Cathering Bligh it is referred to as “3D Flower Square”. The other parts we have done so far are the small corner squares, flower squares #1 and flower squares #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.
