Anyone use Debbie Bliss patterns?

I love my new Debbie Bliss Teddy Bear book, but I need a buddy who can help me with some of the language. I’m a bit confused, but I think I’m faking my way along. Can anyone help?

Even if they don’t have the book, I’m betting someone here can help you. What is the language you are having trouble with?

Her patterns do take a bit of translating to understand. What is it you’re having trouble with?
