Kelowna’s Layer Cake Mountain is a spectacular land form created by ancient volcanic activity and carved away by glacial streams. The unique stacking of alternating thin and thick layers of volcanic rock, formed by the cooling and contracting of volcanic flow, make it the only formation of its kind in the world.

Layer Cake is an asymmetrical shawl, knit tip to end, with sections of squishy garter stitch and decorative ruching.
