The silver content in SilverSpun makes it therapeutic and conductive. Silver kills a number of bacteria, including those that cause odor, has excellent thermal properties, is nontoxic and is perfect for those with sensitive skin. Silver is also an excellent conductive agent, thus allowing smartphone or tablet touch screen use while wearing gloves knit from this yarn. The silver is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out. Made in the USA.

    Hi Johnny

    what confuses me is, doesn’t your stitch count increase when you do the sc row, since you start at the base of your ch1-turn instead of over one?

      No because you do not working into the turn chain on the next row. For sc you always work the first stitch below the ch 1.

        Really? After all these years, I never have. Then again, most of my things have started with a dc on the row after the chain.
