The Featured Native  design is the Wolf in a Pacific Northwest Art Style

Native American Reproduction
Designed and Handloomed by Sharon Nani ~ a Non Native and owner of The Knit Tree

This hand loomed Dance Shawl features the Native American design the Wolf in the Pacific Northwest Art Style. The edges of the blanket are bordered by a Geometric Basketry Design inspired from a Thompson basket with "arrowheads, or sometimes called "deer fence with snares" .

Common features which are used in the "The Wolf" are the black formline which defines all the Wolf parts. Inner designs of the head use the U Shape for the Ears and Ovoid for the eye orbit. The body consists of 2 Ovoids with a center U shape The Front Body is accented with S shapes to represent the ribs . The Foot consists of Two s shaped claws. The Tail is a cresent shape with lines radiating from it to depict the 'furry Tail' The edges of the blanket are bordered by a Geometric Basketry Design inspired from a Thompson basket with "arrowheads, or sometimes called "deer fence with snares"

The Art of the Pacific Northwest Indian Nations is a unique art style all of its own. The different graphic shapes are used to interpret different body parts and characteristics for each animal drawing dependant upon the region. These are harder to depict in a knitwear design where the sutle curves and definite lines must fit in smaller spaces with rectangular shaped knit stitches.
