Named for a modern art movement founded by Kazimir Malevich, characterized by the study of limited geometric shapes, these mitts feature a textured colorwork pattern set off nicely with the skewed join of these mitts. They are knit as a rectangle, but joined with an offset so there is one corner of fabric spread up the fingers and one down the arm. The bias of this offset rectangle makes for a comfortable fit through the wrist.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.
I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
