  1. I'd been searching through my pattern books and online for hours, before finding this pattern on Ravelry.Thank you for a seamless reversible glove pattern! I'll snag a photo or two from Ravelry, since your photos here seem to have vanished. Curious that you speak of 'rows', but it's all in the round; should have said 'rounds'. I'll change that on my copy.
