foll alt row
I am doing Debbie Bliss' teddy bears and I am confused...
"Inc one st at each end of the 3rd row and foll alt row"

Is the "foll alt row" the next row? In other parts of the pattern, it says
"inc at each end of next 2 rows and foll alt row." Huh?

Is this a British thing?

foll alt row = following alternating row. This means that after the increase row you increase on every other row beginning with the second row after the first increase row.

So in this case, since you increased on row 3, you will then increase on row 5 next. Usually, the instructions would say something like increase foll alt row for x rows, not just once.

I'm not sure if it's a British thing or not.
If at first you don't it and try again!
