Nestled in the hills of Charleston is a meandering path known as the Carriage Trail. It winds through the trees as it climbs to the top of the hill at Sunrise Mansion. The Carriage Trail scarf features a meandering path of stockinette stitch bordered by leafy lace and pockets of star stitch.

While in progress, the star stitch has a dense texture but it opens up to a lacier texture when blocked firmly, matching the gauge of the lace sections.

One of the cable stitches uses two cable needles. Don’t be intimidated by this; it’s much easier than it may seem at first glance. The cables are also small and you may want to explore trying to work the cable without a cable needle.
