I picked up a book at Michaels called knitted bears and for the body it says
Cast on 12 sts
Rows 1-2: GS
Row 3-8: inc 1 st at each end of rows 3,5 and 7 [18 sts]
But if I increase on only 3 rows I'll end up with 15 sts not 18.
I don't know if I'm supposed to increase each row and end up with 18 or do the rows it says and end with 15 that would mean the 18 is an error
