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 January 2020 for the Winona Camo categories.     Thanks for your patience.

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

A Knit Winona Camo© Ridge Runner Hat ~ Hunter Blaze Orange ~ choose Size ~ acryl
SKU: AOwinonaCap

Winona Camo© Ridge Runner Hat in Solid Hunter Blaze Orange Color.
Same body design as the Winona Camo Ridge Runner Classic and Elite hats

Available Sizes: One Size Fits Most and xlarge
Fiber: 100% Acrylic

Note: Custom Knitting is all about OPTIONS. The option here is in the finishing. Some hunters like their hats to have a tighter fit to securely stay on the head: under 'Select Trim' we offer that an elastic strip is inserted in the back rib, along with the rib being knit with the spandex Lycra. 'Choose Elastic' if you want this option. Other hunters want a loose fit, and feel after a day of wearing a hat with the elastic insert would give them a headache. 'Choose NO Elastic' if you want this option.

Click Here is see a detailed article showing closeup photos of this Winona Camo© Ridge Runner Hat, including construction details, along with photos comparisons of the Original Winona Ridge Runner Hat originated by Bob Fratzke of the 1980's and the Reconstruction of this Ridge Runner hat by Sharon Nani of The Knit Tree.

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

  • Size: One Size Fits Most or XL:
  • Fiber: 100% acrylic, This gives the same drape as the Winona Camo Classic Ridge Runner Hat originated by Bob Fratzke in the 1980's
  • 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 Long Stitch Fabric
  • The only thing I did different in the reconstruction is, taking advantage of modern day technology, I added lycra to the back rib band for better elasticity and inserted elastic in the rib hem to better control sizing for wash and wear and different head sizes. See Note at top to decide if you want the Elastic OPTION or not.

NOTE: Always consult state hunting regulations for blaze requirements.

Hi Sharon, I received your parcel today. Thanks so much for being able to send it so quickly, and your knitting is awesome !!!! It was nice speaking with you on the phone, it makes your hats more meaningful when you can connect with the person making them. Have a great holiday with your family and friends.
