The Original Demelza Blanket by Catherine Bligh in Stylecraft Special DK
This blanket is designed by Catherine Bligh, inspired by the character 'Demelza' in the BBC's television series Poldark (2015). Catherine has used Demelza's colour palette and incorporated her love of flowers into each square.
Catherine has used Stylecraft Special DK in the following colours: gold x 102g, copper x 133g, stone x 245g, sage x 93g, claret x 87g, citron x 78g, raspberry x 54g, meadow x 102g, camel x 98g and saffron x 104g.
Please be aware that Stylecraft Special DK comes in 100g balls and your usage may be more or less depending on your gauge. Catherine used a 4.5mm hook and as a guide the centre square is roughly 16 inches.

I love the wool but am getting problems finding the pattern.
I haven't tried this pattern yet but it looks complicated. I hope to try it in the near future. It is really beautiful. Libbie

Too difficult for me at the moment. Will wait till l learn more Am still a learner but love the wool colours
Looking forward to starting this project. The colours in the pack work so well.
Great value pack
Love the Stylecraft double knitting wool - so soft and easy to work with. The colours just blend perfectly with each other and the finished product lasts for years. The Demelza pattern was easy to download from Deramores website with lots of tips for an easy to use experience.
