The bear I'm making is the one with the rugby shirt, but the body it calls for is the same as the bear in the nightshirt -- the one on the cover of the book.
Do you know what the pattern means when it says to "Dec one st st each end of next row and 2 foll 3rd rows"? What does the "2 foll 3rd rows" mean? I interpret this to mean:
1st row: dec one at each end
2nd row: work 1 row
3rd row: work 1 row
4th row: dec one at each end
5th row: dec one at each end
But then why wouldn't the pattern just say to dec one at each end of 4th and 5th row?
