rutheb, it looks like they intend for the yarns to be referred to as A through D in the order that they are listed, i.e. A = white Wool-Ease, B= white Fun Fur, and so on. When there are two yarns used together it is one strand of each type in the same color (1 strand Wool-Ease 1 strand Fun Fur, both in same color) the Wool-Ease gives the project body and the Fun Fur makes it furry. The only error I see is in the finishing step they call for yarn "B" (white Fun Fur) to embroider the nose but, as pictured it should have a black nose, so I believe you would use yarn "C" (black Wool-Ease). Hoped this helped.

What do the A,B,C, and D represent? (It say to use two strands of A and B???)
