Half and Half Doll Scarf Peacock Lace/ Broomstick Lace-The Owl and the Pussy cat

This is a pattern for making a small scarf for any doll, a perfect gift for a little girl for her dolly.
Make multiples of 4 times 5 chains for 4 groups of 5 broomstick stitches. Turn, work 3 chains to count as one dc. Work dc across the foundation chain and then continue for 8 rows in broomstick lace, and then change color and continue another 8 rows. Fasten off. Edge  them with tassels and weave in the ends of the piece. Enjoy and happy crocheting.

Here is the  pussy cat I crochet with the owl and pea green boat, from the Owl and the pussy cat poem by Edward Lear and cat is wearing this scarf!! 
Here is the poem for you..

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
    In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
    Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
    And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
      What a beautiful Pussy you are,
          You are,
          You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!
    How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
    But what shall we do for a ring?'
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
    To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
    With a ring at the end of his nose,
          His nose,
          His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

   'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
    Your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were married next day
    By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
    Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
    They danced by the light of the moon,
          The moon,
          The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

This poem was something that I learnt in my kindergarten, and enjoyed it as a child and still love it!!
 Until we meet again, lots of love to you.
