Eavesdrop is a beautifully minimal linen tee - perfect for warm weather. Looking for pieces for a capsule wardrobe? This is the one!
Eavesdrop is knit top-down in one piece with raglan cap-sleeve shaping and a texture of sequence knitting on the back and sleeves with a defining horizontal stitch “seam” to delineate the transition between sequence and stockinette. The garment is knit flat and seamed along the front at the very end. If knit in recommended yarn, the tee will have elegant drape and the sequences will relax into a beautiful pebble-like texture with blocking.
Gauge: 24 st and 29 rows in 10cm square of garter stitch. We highly recommend swatching, & washing and blocking swatch before starting the garment to get gauge, fit and better estimation of yarn. Note that Linen yarn will bloom and relax slightly with blocking.
