What is the name of the bear pattern? It would help if we could see it. (Don't post the pattern here though..against copyright)

1 - it doesnt say to knit them together, so I think you just k3 and leave them on a stitch holder to get back to them later.

2 - 'join wool' just means to start knitting with a new strand. Leave a tail long enough to weave in later.

3 - hmmm, I think 'reverse knit from 47-51' means to knit those rows in reverse order - 51, 50, 49, 48, 47. Then you work the next row, k2 together, k11 k2 tog

Dont give up!

You just picked a really hard thing to knit, with lots of shaping and therefore lots of complicated instructions.

Try reading the pattern through a bit further, it might become clear what you do later on.

Or take it half finished to the wool shop, there are usually ladies around who can help and see what you've done.

Or start knitting a really simple jumper, and come back to the teddy when you get your confidence up. Despite being big, jumpers really are MUCH easier than teddies, as long as you pick a plain, simple pattern.

can you post what the pattern says before and after the rows in question? This might help figure out what it is telling you to do.
