Tucked into the shores of Kalamalka Lake, Jade Bay is one of the lake’s many great beaches. Named for the Okanagan chief that occupied it’s shores, Kalamalka Lake is one of only a handful of ‘marl lakes’ that display the reaction of limestone deposits to temperature change. In summer these deposits crystallize, giving the lake its blue-green hue.

Jade Bay is a top down, triangle shawl consisting of squishy garter stitch and a simple lace border. Designed for your favorite solid colour, two complimentary colours, or a main colour and a mini kit.
