Quadrilaterals are a basic four-sided shape that we see and use every single day. This design uses five shades of the same color to play with this simple shape. Worked from the bottom cuff up, these mitts align stranded colorwork blocks into horizontal and lateral quadrants that gradually lengthen along with the mitt. These sleek shapes elongate the palm and fingers for a flattering fit while showing that monochrome can be anything but ordinary.
