Located in the hills above Kelowna, BC, Myra Canyon is a beautiful and historic section of the Kettle Valley Railway, originally built by hand at the turn of the last century. This impressive landmark is now a world-famous hiking/cycling trail, highlighted by two tunnels, eighteen trestle bridges, and breathtaking views.

These simple mittens are knit bottom up, with a twisted-rib cuff, thumb gusset, and twisted-rib top. The gusset is created with paired yarn-over increases, which are then twisted when knit, eliminating the holes normally left by yarn-overs. Symmetrical decreases run along either side of the mitten top.
