Proudly part of Countess Ablaze’s #titsoutcollective, this special Demelza Edition shawl is named after Poldark’s strong leading female character and was first conceived of as a large DK-weight shawl to be worn by Demelza Poldark whilst she is striding along a wind-swept Cornish clifftop. She is a brave and resourceful character, who experiences many hardships, including domestic abuse that forces her to leave her childhood home. As with all the #titsoutcollective projects, a portion of the revenue will go to charity, so up until 1st August 2018, £1 from each pattern sale will be donated to Scottish Women’s Aid.

The small triangular 4ply version is knitted in beautiful limited-edition yarn from The Wool Kitchen, also created especially for the #titsoutcollective shop here

The shawl pattern is now written to include two 4ply sizes, as well as the original DK version. It features stitch patterns inspired by the layered rocks found in cliff sides around the UK, which work fantastically with both solid shades and variegated yarn, or can be worked in stripes.

The pattern includes full written instructions, charts, photographs, a schematic and has been fully tech-edited.
