The Inca trail (also known as Camino Inca) is the classic trek to Machu Picchu. Located in the Andes mountain range, the trail brings you through several unique environments including cloud forests and alpine tundra. You pass villages and Incan ruins before arriving at the sun Gate on Machu Picchu. this project uses a center cast-on and double-pointed needles and begins at the top. It combines a classic take on a feather-and-fan-lace stitch with contrasting colored purl ridges, plus a double ribbed band to keep your ears warm. the combination of colors and stitches is both modern and classic at the same time. the band uses a purl ridge to create a neat fold and is stitched down on the inside, for a really clean and elastic finish.
