Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We are now open for accepting orders on a first come/first serve basis.  Please allow more time for filling custom orders.  I am entering into a closer retirement time.   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

SKU: Avcaphawk

Native American Reproduction
Designed and Handloomed by Sharon Nani ~ a Non Native and owner of The Knit Tree

This Unique Knit Visor Cap honors the White Hawk from the Woodland tribes.

White Hawk is inspired from a Woodlands Indian design. The white hawk is noted for the black band of color on its wings and tail feathers.  It has a black beak and yellow legs. Woodland Indian designs were often beaded as separate design elements. Historic Woodland designs were geometric which often honored the birds and animals. Natitve American Woodland Indian designs are also known for their beautiful floral designs which were introduced from the floral embroidery designs influenced by the needlework taught in Canadian convents by Roman Catholic sisters.

Many Indian tribes are referred to as Woodlands. These tribes extended from Central Canada in the North to Texas in the South and Eastward to the Atlantic Ocean.  Some reference books further divide them into the Eastern Woodland and the Southeastern Woodland Tribes.  Author W. Ben Hunt wrote Indian Crafts and Lore in 1954, published by Golden Press.  In this book a map of North American Indian Cultural Areas was shown. Some of the Eastern Woodland Indian tribes were shown as: Swamp Cree, Central Cree, Chippewa, Menomini, Winnebago, Sauk-Fox, Potawatomi, Miami, Ottawa, Huron, Wyandot, Algonkin, Montagnais, Beothuk, Abnaki, Penobscot, Micmac, Mahican, Mohawk, Onedia, Seneca, Erie, Iroquois, Delaware, Conestoga, Susquehanna, Pennacook, Massachuset, Pequot, and Narraganset. Southeastern Woodland tribes were shown as: Kickapoo, Illinois, Quapaw, Cadoo, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Tonkawa, Atakapa, Natchez, Shawnee, Cherokee, Creek, Powhatan, Tuscarora, and Seminole.
