In the UK , Tweenie is a girl just before she reaches adolescence. My friend’s daughter admired my little girl’s eternity scarf, which I quickly knitted up using sock yarn from my stash and so of course when I got home, I put my 12 days of Christmas shelf borders into my UFO pile (there was no way I’d get from 6 swans a swimming to 12 drummers drumming in the three days I had left to Christmas 😜😬) and started this (Yes, I’m crocheting and blogging on a train again):

The Irish crochet motif theme continues with an “evolution of roses”
One layer

2 layers

3 layers

There is a cunningly hidden button hole to turn it from a hanging loop into a warm snuggly cowl, which I’m rather fond of.

Let me know if you’d like me to upload a pattern 😜

I have a cotton jumper I absolutely love,  it is whisper> more than 25 years old 
😯 and the cuffs are sadly disintegrating.

I decided to use some 100% cotton pink wool (the sharp sighted may recognize it here ) and I am very pleased with the result  🙂
