OK, so I've finished assembling the baby bolero I'm making, and now it says this on the pattern:
Join raglan and side seams (done). With rs facing, using 3 1/2mm needles, starting at centre of lower edge of back, pick up and knit 27 sts evenly to side seam, 21 sts evenly along lower edge of right front, 6 sts evenly along shaped edge, 4 sts evenly along straight edge.
I have no clue how to pick up and knit stitches. What does that mean? I have a feeling I'm going to have to take this into the knitting store and have them show me, but I thought I'd try to ask here. You guys are great about making sense out of "pattern speak".
