Changes for 2018

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 45 years of operating The Knit Tree, in 2018, I will be semi-retiring.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer and by taking limited orders on garments (camo jackets, vests, and pants).  I will keep all the Winona Camo, 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

Another group of Machine Knit America articles that I wrote are posted on The Knit Trees ‘article page’  These are all under the Knitting Machine Basics Category.

Travel as You Knit is a series of three articles giving detailed instructions on how to knit necklines by the short row method.  These are written for machine knitters, but hand knitters can use the same techniques by slipping stitches.  This technique is how I try to finish most of my knit garments because it gives a very smooth and polished finish which makes assembly even easier. I suggest you knit each mini sample from parts 1 thru 3 because it starts with the simple rules then advances unto the round necklines – learning these knitting skills will give you the foundation to add the procedures to any of your own knit garments.  Have fun Knitting
