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

Basketry Designs Are Preserved In These Keep Sake Blankets from the Pacific Northwest. They are Native American Reproductions Designed and Hand loomed by Sharon Nani ~ a Non Native and owner of The Knit Tree. We have gotten many requests from various Pacific Northwest tribes and tribal members to design blankets with the various totems.

The Art of the Pacific Northwest Indian Nations is a unique art style all of its own. The different graphic shapes are used to interpret different body parts and characteristics for each animal drawing dependent upon the region. These are harder to depict in a knitwear design where the subtle curves and definite lines must fit in smaller spaces with rectangular shaped knit stitches. The Pacific Northwest Coast Art is applicable to many Indian Nations ranging from Alaska to Northern California. This would include: Tlingit, Tahltan, Kaigani Haida, Nisga's, Gitksan, Haida, Haisla, Coast Tsimshian, Nuxalk, Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, Oweekeno, Nuu-chah-nulth, Makah, Coast Salish, Tolowa, Yurok, and Wiyot.

Native American Blankets are all Custom Knit so you can select your own colors for the 2 color blankets. Each design is offered in acrylic or merino wool yarn.
