Eavesdrop is part of the Encounters Collection, a collaboration between friends (Olive Knits & b.Woolens). We’ve each designed two pieces inspired by our friendship.
There’s a KAL happening over in my Ravelry group right now!

Eavesdropping. That’s how we met. Brittney Bailey (b.Woolens) came into the yarn shop where I worked and overheard us talking about needing a new knitting instructor. A few minutes later, she said, “I didn’t mean to eavesdrop, but did you say you might need someone to teach knitting?”
The rest was history.
From that day forward we found kinship in our shared passion for fiber, pottery, history, travel, fashion … and it was that foundation that led us to establish not only a partnership of support for each other’s individual design journeys, but inspired us to collaborate. Thus, the Encounters Collection. See the last page for all the details.
Eavesdrop celebrates the fusion of friendship and the way it changes us.
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.
