Quince fingerless gloves have a simple undulating pattern that remind me of windblown waves in sand dunes. This pattern is a quick knit with just 24 rows per glove/mitt. Each glove is knit flat and seamed using the mattress stitch. (If you are new to the mattress stitch, it is super easy and quick. There are fabulous tutorials readily available on You Tube.)

The undulating waves contrast nicely with a simple stockinette stitch back side that give these gloves a refined final look.

Stitches used in this pattern are knit, purl, slip slip knit, yarn over, knit two together and purl two together.

The pattern works best with worsted weight yarn. I used a hand spun I had been storing in my stash for the past 15 years. I knit these on size 4 needles, but check your gage first and adjust your needle size accordingly.

This is a written pattern with line-by-line instructions.
