Store Message

Changes for 2018: Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We have accepted all the knit orders we can get done for 2018, you can still place an order, but it will not be processed until 2019.  Merry Christmas!

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 45 years of operating The Knit Tree, in 2018, I will be semi-retiring.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer and by taking limited orders on garments (camo jackets, vests, and pants).  I will keep all the Winona Camo, 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

The Pacific Northwest Coast Art is applical to many Indian Nations ranging from Alaska to Northern California. This would include: Tlingit, Tahltan, Kaigani Haida, Nisga's, Gitksan, Haida, Haisla, Coast Tsimshian, Nuxalk, Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, Oweekeno, Nuu-chah-nulth, Makah, Coast Salish, Tolowa, Yurok, and Wiyot.

Common features which are used in the "Eagle with Spreading Wings" are the black formline which defines all the Eagle parts. Inner designs of the head use the U Shape for the Ears and Ovoid for the eye orbit. Wings are variations of U Shapes angled out to form the magnificent Spreading Wings. The Oval Body is accented with S shapes to represent the ribs and crescents to represent feathers. The Foot consists of Four claws. U Shapes are frequently used on birds to depict the shape of feathers. The U Shaped tail Feathers have accents of trigon shapes. Two Large Trigons accent the spreading wings in flight. The edges of the blanket are bordered by a Geometric Basketry Design.
