Slipping first sts of every row work 3 more rows in stocking st.
Cast off knit wise from the WS.

Sew short edges of thumb together and cast on sts of thumb and hand together.

Repeat for left glove reversing gusset increases.

* Note: there is no reason you couldn’t use dpns to knit the thumb in the round. I just didn’t have any handy when I made them.

These need a name, any suggestions?
