The most common basic work glove patterns.
This is the most popular pattern for cotton flannel gloves. Palms are a seam-free one piece, with seams at the back of the hand to allow for a seam-free palm. This pattern provides both comfort and good hand protection.
Reversible (or Ambidextrous)
A pattern that has the thumb positioned on the side of the glove so it can be worn on either hand. Particularly effective where palm or thumb receive a lot of wear. When thumb or palm wears out, glove can be switched to other hand.
Particularly effective in leather palm gloves because leather on the front of fingers extends two thirds of the way around each finger eliminating exposed seams in palm wear area.
