Mittens à la Neige

Mittens in Blizzard: waterproof  coated cotton canvas, 2013
A pair of waterproof mittens. Even hands are subject to winter's reverse strip tease of layer upon layer! 

Utility and warmth: The outer mitten is waterproof canvas. The interior mitten is fleece.
The pattern is based upon a mitten worn for many years [mitten, singular--thus the impulse to make a pair]! It's comprised of a of a wide gauntlet-like cuff, a palm piece and separate thumb piece with a gusset.
