Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We look forward to 2024 being a great year here at The Knit Tree.   As Sharon Nani, owner, prepares for retirement, she is training her son, Ken to knit the items in the online store, plus the ones that were removed.  Ken is going to take over The Knit Tree and its equipment so we can continue to offer these unique custom knits to our customers. Ken is not new to machine knitting - he earned his high school and college spending money by filling orders back in the 1990's, and has continued to help in maintaining the equipment.  Ken is creative in his own rights with his "Custom Wood and Land Works" business where he falls the timber, prepares the lumber and creates unique wood items and projects: custom storage sheds, fences, decks ect.  So we may add new catagories to this web site when the time arrives.  SO LOOK FORWARD TO ADDING THE CAMO KNITS BACK INTO THE ONLINE STORE THIS YEAR.

Woodlands Design ~ White Hawk on this knit Native Visor beanie
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.
