Used Vanna’s Choice (Brick & White) only because of the colors available for fox! I knit tight…was able to get one large size and one small size with one skein of the fox color.

NOSE/FACE JOIN clarification: 1st needle of black nose stitches are done by knitting 2 together. 8 stitches on front needle once flap is “loaded”: K2tog - 4 black stitches are on front; 4 on back.
**

Load nose stitches between each white face loop, beginning with white, knitting 2tog first needle with black. (Seems to hide white best). Knit 3 rounds of black. Cut black leaving tail. Kitchner to close and then back stitch through all layers where black began to shape nose tip.

**

Nose flap is sewn down with matching yarn after finishing black tips…be careful not to stitch through bottom layer of mitten!

FOR LEFT HAND - 32 stitch count mitten errors… will update soon.

Alternate explanation for rearranging stitches and moving LEFT thumb stitches to waste yarn:
After last F/B increase for thumb… Knit first stitch from Needle 1 onto needle 3.
ROW 10: Knit 17 from Needle 1 (Place last stitch onto Needle 2)
Knit 8 for Needle 2. (Move 2 remaining stitches to Needle 3)
Knit 7, Move 13 stitches to waste yarn (CLOSING THE GAP)
Knit last stitch, plus first stitch from Needle 1 onto Needle 3. 16-8-9
Row 11: (NOT 13!) Knit 30, Knit 2 together (above thumb join for added strength), Knit 1.
Stitches arranged:16-8-8
