Designaknit has created a new cable to connect the Silver Electronic Knitting Machines to your computer using a USB connection, the SilverLink5. No more hassles with the serial port! The USB connection provides a quick and easy connection. This is the way that computers should be!

and memory too!

The little black box: that’s the Smarts! In the continuing effort to increase stability and performance, optional DesignaKnit 7.0 has added memory to the cable. The memory improves DAK’s Interactive Knitting for today’s faster computers.

The SilverLink5 allows Windows 98, 2000 or XP to connect DAK to Silver Electronic Knitting Machines using the USB port on the computer. The SilverLink5 comes with the USB cable to connect from the box to your computer. If you do not have a USB port you can purchase a serial cable from any local computer supply store and connect the SilverLink5 to the serial port, giving you the benefit of the memory.
