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

The Knit Tree offers Unique Dance Shawls in our Finest Merino Wool or Economical High Grade Turbo Acrylic. Our Custom Dance Shawls are hand loomed with YOU and YOUR personal Choices in Mind

Traditionally, Dance Shawls have long fringe on all four sides or three sides - leaving the top not fringed. Our dance shawl is three sided with 18" long fringe which has been crochet linked to the main body. The fringe is in the same color as the featured design.

The knit fabric is constructed with a 'slip stitch' on the back side to give non stretch stability to the dance shawl and a jacquard slip stitch on the front side to give the vividness of the design. Laying 'flat', this fabric measures 38" in depth and approximately 60" length (hand to hand) dependent upon the motif and yarn fiber. The 38" depth does not include the 18" length fringe. This jacquard stitch construction fabric is identical to our 2 color Native American Blankets, which are often worn as Robes without the fringe.

Fabric Care: All dance shawls should be hand washed, gently, ~ holding the weight so as not to stretch the fabric so that the fringe does not get tangled in any spinning action. You can use a wide toothed comb to separate and comb your fringe. If you do hand wash, dry by: reshape to the laying flat measurements given above and let dry thoroughly before moving. Again, even though acrylic can be machine washed - spinning action in washing or drying will tangle your fringe. If you have a special setting on your washer or dryer to eliminate the spin cycles, you can machine wash/dry the acrylic dance shawls. Merino Wool should be hand washed / lay flat to dry or dry cleaned.
