“Lady’s Mittens: Fancy Wave Stitch Up the Back of the Hand” published in Weldon’s Practical Knitter (Thirty-Third Series, 1896) and republished in Weldon’s Practical Needlework Volume 11.

“These mittens have a nice length of ribbing to go up the arm and therefore will keep the wrists comfortably warm; a pretty fancy knit wave stitch stripe runs up the back of the hand, but the palm and thumb are in plain stocking stitch.

“Required: 1 1/2 ozs. of navy blue Andalusian wool, or a 2-oz. packet of Victoria or other fine knitting yarn, and four No. 16 steel knitting needles.”

The pdf is a “rewrite” of the original pattern using modern terminology and supplies.
