Love this pattern! I'm a little confused at the Round 1 part. Is that part crocheted across the top? Or separately? Thanks!!

Hello Shannon,
I re-wrote Rnd 1 in the hopes it will be clearer. Essentially, you are working around the entire outer edge of the rectangle, first in the ends of the rows, then sc across the bottom, then (sc, dc, sc) in the end of the rows, skip 2 rows, then sc across the top. Join to form the Rnd. I hope this helps!
The Rnd is below:

Rnd 1: Working around outer edge in ends of rows and in each sc, (sc, dc, sc) in first end of stitch, *sk next 2 ends of stitches, (sc, dc, sc) in next end of stitch, repeat from * across; working around wrist warmer, sc in each sc (S - 24, M - 28, L - 32), sc in ends of rows, sc in ea sc across; join with a sl st to first sc.
(24, 28, 32). Fasten off.

Oh, good! I hope they turn out well! I love mine, especially for driving when the steering wheel is so cold! lol

Definitely! So far so good! I'm making them for my mom who has arthritis. She always has cold hands/arms so these should help her around the house! :)
