The Knit Tree specializes in hand loomed camouflage knit garments and accessories for hunters, babies, and anyone who loves to wear knit camo themed garments. We've even added knit camouflage home decor throws and pillow slip covers to the camouflage line of knits.

Matt Howe, a bow hunter from Michigan had definite hunting needs in mind when he asked Sharon Nani, owner of The Knit Tree, if she'd custom knit this camouflage jacket and outerwear knit camo pants back in 2004. His input was invaluable as he critiqued the Camouflage design, the merino / acrylic blend of fabric, and the style of knit camo hunting clothes.

Go to our online knit store to find our wide variety of knit camo sweater and camouflage jacket styles in Camouflage design. Then check out the knit camo beanies, knit camo cargo pants, and even the knit camouflage for babies. A variety of camo color ways are available.

Contact us if you don't see the camouflage that meets your needs. New camouflage garments are custom knit to fill our customers camo needs as we get special requests. We always appreciate your input and love to see the photos of our clients in The Knit Tree's line of Camouflage Knits.

New Styles of Camouflage Knit Jackets, Sweaters, Knit Camo Accessories and Camo Beanies are added as Clients Requests are filled.

The new style of camo jacket is first visually drawn and colored on the computer
New designs are drawn on the computer, then the pattern pieces are drafted on paper. This is colorway E: camel/black/brown.
Knit Camouflage Raglan Jacket in Snow Camo
The final step in the design process is knitting the final prototype to test for fit. This raglan sytle jacket was knit in snow camo: white/black/grey.

The Knit Tree specializes in personalized knit requests in the Camouflage line of Knit Products.  Hunters often have hunting clothes that have worn with age, but the company they purchased it from is no longer in business. Contact us  to see if we can fill your needs.  The client that described his worn out acrylic Winona Knit Jacket with the Zipper Front and Ribbing at the wrist and waist, a shirt collar, and  No Spill front side pockets was in luck because Sharon Nani, owner of The Knit Tree had drawn a design that was close to this description.  A new style of Camouflage Jacket that was in the 'to be knit' hand loomed knit list to be added this year.. This Raglan Sleeve Camo jacket is knit with our special blend of superfine merino wool and acrylic yarn.  The softness of the merino wool and its naturally insulating and moisture wicking characteristics added to the acrylic fiber makes a fantastic knit camouflage fiber for hunting and fashion.

With Sharon Nani, owner of The Knit Tree, going into partial retirement. Part of the knit camouflage line is taken out of the online store, but as time allows the popular items are reposted to be knit as time allows. Watch for Camouflage Knit items coming back this year: Camo Hooded Jacket for Adults, Children, and Babies, Zipper front Jackets for Kids and Babies, Knit Camo Visor Caps for Babies, Camouflage Balaclava neck warmers, camo waist packs, and much more!  We are so pleased with the response to our Hand loomed Knit Camouflage garments and accessories, that our Camouflage Knit items just keep growing as we get more requests for hard to find knit items.  If you are interested in any of these knit items in our Camo pattern and don't see them in our online catalog Camouflage Showroom yet, contact us to get them put to the top of the Knitting List.
