Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits. We will not be taking any more orders before the first of the year.    Thanks for your patience.

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 50 years of operating The Knit Tree, in 2020, I will be entering my 2nd phase of retirement.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer.  I will no longer be accepting custom orders for the Winona Camo garments: jackets, pants, vests, hoodies, ect. As I have time I will knit some of these Camo garments and put up on the web site. These would be a 'one order item of a certain size and colorway.  I will keep some of  the Winona Camo hat category, the Native American, and Yarn, Kits and Patterns categories. I will be updating the online store to reflect these changes and look forward to hearing from you in the coming years.
Have a Great Day, Sharon

Basketry Designs Are Preserved In These Keep Sake Blankets from Northern California. Darlene Marshall is the artisan for the Hupa, Yurok Karuk Blankets. Darlene is a registered member of the Hupa Tribe.

These basketry marks are geometric designs. Many Tribes use Geometric Designs in their Basketry and Bead work along with Florals. So the same design may be recognized by a different name dependent upon the area. Some of the Indian Nations that use Geometric Designs within their art are: Apache, Aztec, Blackfoot, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chippewa, Comanche, Chumash, Coast Salish, Fox, Hupa, Haida, ÜInca, Karuk, Klamath, Kwakiutl,ÜLakota, Maidu, Mayan, MeWuk, Miwok, Modoc, Navajo, Nez Perce, Nootka, Ojibwa, Paiute, Pit River, Pomo, Seminole, Shoshone, Sioux, Tlingit, Umatilla, Ute, Wailaki, Washo, Wintu, Yakama, Yokut, Yurok. The book "Language of the Robe" by Robert W. Kapoun with Charles J. Lohrmann shows in many ways the importance of the Native American Blanket and the honor in receiving such a gift.

Native American Blankets are all Custom Knit so you can select your own colors and each design is offered in acrylic or merino wool yarn. Some of the designs are offered in a lap size.

If you would like a design in a lap size in a motif that you do not see offered, contact customer service to see if it can be knit. .
