The houndstooth knit is a clothing item in every first-generation Animal Crossing game.

The houndstooth knit can be obtained from Tom Nook's store during winter for  370 Bells.[nb 4]

In Animal Crossing, this item is worn by Butch as their default outfit.

In Doubutsu no Mori e+, this item is worn by Bow and Tarou as their default outfit.


  1. Each item belongs in one of three rarity groups (A, B, or C), and each group is mapped to a rarity when the town is created. For example, in one town Group A clothing may be common while in another town, Group A clothing will be rare.
  2. In Doubutsu no Mori e+ only, each clothing item has a style that determines which villagers will like or dislike it when given as a gift from another villager, as well as their reaction to the player if they wear it.
  3. Animal Crossing catalog number; #220 in Doubutsu no Mori; #222 in Doubutsu no Mori+; #222 in Doubutsu no Mori e+; #220 in Dòngwù Sēnlín
  4. As clothing available from Tom Nook's store, this item is also available from the following sources: the dump; Mom; the player's birthday; Wisp; Sale Day; the Lost & Found (if the item's rarity group is common); and Gracie if the player fails to completely wash her car (if the item's rarity group is common). All of these sources except Wisp require the item to be in season.
