Tucked into the eastern shores of Okanagan Lake, the quaint neighbourhood of Okanagan Center boasts beautiful wineries, sloped vineyards, and rolling orchards. This heart of the Okanagan Valley is home to numerous trails and parklands, and the tranquil Pixie Beach.

Pixie Beach is a top down, triangular shawl with simple eyelets and eye-catching bobbles. Knit it in your favorite solid, or two contrasting colours.
