The playful texture of the senecio plant - also known as string of pearls - was the inspiration behind this design. Similarly to how tender strands of senecio become thinner as they descend from the center of the plant, the embellishment of nupps changes to more and more subtle from the top to the bottom of the yoke until it dissolves completely in the gentle ribbing.
Senecio is worked from the top down seamlessly with the round yoke. The neck is shaped with short rows. This design features slipped and twisted stitches, small biased stripes, Japanese wrapped stitches and two kinds of nupps. The main stitch pattern is easy to memorize and entertaining to knit. Instructions are both charted and written.
