This pattern is available for free.

These fingerless gloves are knitted in two parts - first the “thumb part” is knitted upwards, then stitches are picked up from the side and the rest of the glove is made - it is sewn together using a kitchener stitch. The “wavy” pattern is achieved by short rows – contrasted with two full length garter stitch rows.

Some notes and illustrations can be found on my blog.
