The Chalice Cowl is the first pattern in my Fall 2011 Earth Collection, which also includes the Faraway Blues Wrap and Long Way Home Cardigan. It is an over-sized cowl that can be made with or without buttons and worn as a traditional cowl or as a cowl/cape hybrid over the shoulders. It is an excellent transitional piece for early spring.
Lace instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.

35 ¼ (40 , 44 ¾)” / 89.5 (101.5, 113.5) cm circumference.
11 ½ (13 ¼, 15)” / 29 (33.5, 38) cm high.
Fit is oversized. The lace will stretch substantially to accommodate wear over the shoulders, but keep your shoulder circumference in mind when determining which size to make if you intend to wear it that way. For larger sizes worn over the shoulder, change to a needle one to two sizes smaller halfway through the cowl to draw the fabric in at the neck edge.
