Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We will be temporairly closed during the shelter in place status.    Thanks for your patience.

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 48 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

We are always honoured to receive requests to put a special Indian design on the knit caps. We take great pride in being part of preserving the culture of the Indian tribe through the modern media of knitting it on a cap, headband, scarf, or knit product that the person requests.

This graphic design was translated by Sharon Nani, a non Native, and owner of The Knit Tree.

This design was requested by Daniel Barney along with the following information.  Thank you Daniel.
"The design was originally a wampum belt created to show the five nations uniting in a Confederacy of one big nation the Haudenosaunee (people of the long house) our family is Onondaga which is (the people of the hills) in central new York. From left to right the symbols represent Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida and Mohawk in the order of homeland west to east. All five make up Haudenosaunee and later Tuscarora being the six nations in
new York and part of Canada. My grandpa and dad born on Onondaga reservation near Syracuse. Our nations voting system was the first Democratic style system that lead to the American system and the declaration being made. Except women were the ones who voted for the leaders. We are turtle clan which also comes from the women's side."
