Slipstream begins with a provisional cast on and is worked flat, knitting back and forth along the width of the cowl. Each row begins and ends with four knitted stitches, which creates a simple garter stitch edge that keeps the edges from curling. There are two lace motifs, which alternate across the width and length of the cowl. Once the desired length is reached, the cowl is grafted together using the Kitchener stitch for a seamlessly connected loop.
