The articles made by this method of the invention include socks and gloves which are of three-ply construction with the inside and outside plies being knit and the intermediate ply being made from an elastomeric polyurethane film. The three plies are uniquely bonded together using a pliant, waterproof adhesive to form a laminated article having specific elasticity characteristics.
