Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits. We look forward to 2021 being a great year and hope to continue to support the needs of our awesome customers.

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 50 years of operating The Knit Tree.  I am still phasing into my semi retirement plan.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer.  For the present time I will not be taking custom orders for the knit Winona Camo™ garments: jackets, pants, vests, hoodies, ect. on the web site until I get caught up with my existing orders. . When I get these caught up, I will put the Winona Cardi, Vest and Cargo Pants back on web site since I have had so many requests to do so hopefully by March 2021   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

For those of you that have owned the earlier Winona sweaters, jackets or pants knit in the 70’s – 90’s --- these were offered on a tighter fit scale. Today we have a lot of larger sized clients.

  • Pants are based on the Waist and the Inseam Measurement, To keep ordering simple, check our sizing chart and pick the size that corresponds to your actual waist and hip measurement. This would be the same waist measurement you use when you purchase pants. Then under options below fill in your desired inseam inches if it is different than the standard inseam measurements given in the chart. If you are in between sizes, select the larger size.
  • If you fall into one size for the waist and a different size for the hip, we can adjust for this in your custom pattern. When you place your order, there is a place for 'Comments' Tell us that in that section. For example A 37" waist is a Size Large. But a 46" Hip is a size XLarge.
  • Different amount of 'Ease Factor's are used Dependant upon Style, Fabric, and Utilitarian Use of Garment. We have taken this into consideration for this style of Cargo Pant. This is approximately 3-4" larger then your actual measurements.
  • If you prefer the oversized look with 6" larger than your actual measurements, order the next size larger.

If you have any questions about selecting the correct size, please email me your actual waist, hip, and inseam measurements along with the pant size you normally wear, at customer service/contact us. I will email you back with your recommended size information. Thank you for examining our camouflage cargo pant
