The pattern exactly states :
Body: Begin at neck edge cast on 30 St
1st row - K3 inc in next 16 St K3 50 St
Beginning with a purl row work 12 rows St St
I have managed to knit the teddys head and ears lust this first row has me confused because I can't get it to make sense or result in 50 st.
Any help appreciated I am a beginner and this is my first teddy bear.
