Store Message

Changes for 2019: Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We have a long waiting list for the first come / first serve Winona Camouflage knits - at this time new orders will be processed mid August 2019.  May you have a happy and healthy New Year!

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

This hat style was made famous by Bob Fratzke. It can be worn flopped down over your ears or some hunters like to fold the back up in the 'Robin Hood' style. Check out our photo which shows both ways. Choose between different Color Combinations or contact us if you want to create your own camo color ways using our available colors of yarn. Our model in the photo is wearing color way Q

Each camo cap is individually hand loomed and assembled. It is NOT a mass produced item.

The Fratzke Floppy cap in the photo is pictured in Camo Colorway Q: Deep Mocha (color 1) / Black Shadows (Color 2) / and Bark Brown (Color 3).

  • Size: One Size Fits All ~ Stretchable
  • Fiber: Winona Camo Classic©: 100% acrylic,
  • Hand Loomed for Quality Workmanship and Personal Care
  • Machine Wash Cold Water/Gentle dry low heat in the dryer for about 10 minutes,
  • Double Bed Jacquard Fabric (no yarn floats on the inside of garment).
  • The only thing I did different in the reconstruction is, visually there is a 2 line verticle rib line. Fratzke's original hat was knit on a commericial knitting machine. It visually had a 1 line verticle rib line. The domestic Passap knitting machine could not duplicate this exact fiber, but they drape the same and the sewing pattern is the same.

Knit Winona Floppy Cap

After many hats (and yes I'm a hat junkie), I've finally found the perfect hunting hat for me. I wear it folded up when warmer and fold down when colder. It covers the back of the neck to keep the chill out. And it is sooooooo comfortable. GREAT HAT!!! by William Hansen Date Added: Tuesday 07 May, 2013
