I am making the gloves using Chroma from Knit Picks with size 2 needles.  I try on as I go, and the first glove is definitely a right hand glove.  If i try it on my left hand it bunches where it shouldn't.  There is no direction for a glove for the left hand, and I'm trying to figure out how to reverse the shaping.  Has anyone made these gloves?  If I start the thumb shaping on needle #3, would that work?  It's a lovely glove and knits up well in the Chroma.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks, PatH

Generally you reverse what you did for the other hand.  So if the thumb shaping for the right hand starts three stitches from the start of the round, then to do the left you would do the shaping three stitches from the end.  You might want to look at other glove patterns to get a general idea.
