Casapinka (not her real name) designed our Silver Storm Cowl using a skein of our SilverSpun® Sock in the natural color. We say this only because color (pink, actually) is her true passion, and to design around the fiber instead of the color was a stretch for her. But she did it and the result is one of our most popular designs. Casapinka is an artist and an ER doctor. She believes in "wallpaper, the color pink and knitted cars", and she is fascinated with civil aviation, spending hours knitting and listening to air traffic controllers. A true Renaissance woman!
About the Silver Storm Cowl Knitting PatternThe inspiration for Casapinka's work often comes from something she sees, the yarn she's holding, or a shape somewhere. She approaches knitting like finding a problem and finding a solution. For the Silver Storm Cowl, her problem was the single, subtle color and she worked to give it more edge. You have two options when knitting this cowl. Both ways involve knitting it in a rib pattern with a "cross-hatching" of garter stitch. You may keep it this way or, if you want something a bit edgier, when you are near the top, you can drop every purled stitch right down to the cast on edge, which creates a gently rolled bottom.
The Power of SilverSpun® For Connectivity and ComfortThe silver content in SilverSpun® makes it therapeutic and conductive. Silver inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria, has excellent thermal properties, is nontoxic and is perfect for those suffering from diabetes, arthritis and sensitive skin. Silver is also an excellent conductive agent thus allowing smart phone or tablet touch screen use while wearing gloves knit from the yarn. The silver is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out.
