The time has once again come when a beautiful project we have been working on for quite some time has reached its completion. With happy feelings I look back om making my Demelza blanket using Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn.
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.

Colorway and Yarn amounts
I used 13 colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn with a 3.5mm hook to make my Demelza blanket. All details for when I used which color for the squares as well as the join and border are given in my color chart.
I used 28 balls of Stone Washed in the following colors:
- 3 x Moonstone (801),
- 3 x Boulder Opal (804),
- 2 x Canada Jade (806),
- 2 x Red Jasper (807),
- 2 x Corundum Ruby (808),
- 2 x Deep Amethyst (811),
- 1 x Lemon Quartz (812),
- 3 x Amazonite (813),
- 2 x Green Agate (815),
- 2 x Coral (816),
- 2 x Citrine (817),
- 2 x Lilac Quartz (818), and
- 2 x New Jade (819).
If you would like to look back on the road we have traveled to make Demelza; we started with 16 small corner squares, flowed by 8 flat flower squares in first one and then a second design, after which we then made 4 3D flower corner squares, the rectangular panels and finally the center square. Joining all the pieces was a lot of work and the cherry on the cake was the border.
This brings us to the end of another beautiful project. For the short term I have no new CAL’s planned, but I am working on several projects for the new year. When the time is right I will tell more.
