Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits. We will not be taking any more orders before the first of the year.    Thanks for your patience.

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 50 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

Pacific Northwest(salmon) blanket and cap set

Product Review: Pacific Northwest(salmon) blanket and cap set Dear Sharon~ I am so pleased with the above mentioned set~ the Pacific Northwest traditional design is represented around the blanket, and cap borders; the colors are bold while holding the traditional blessing, "keeping the baby in the center". The blanket and cap are well hand-crafted, and made with excellent materials. I have searched for a Native American crafted product site....that also supports cottage businesses. The price for the set is below other similar items that I found. Your courtesy in answering my numerous questions, went well beyond "customer service". I will definitely be a return shopper.
