I've been knitting for a while. I've started my first what I consider difficult baby bootee pattern. Its the pattern on page 77 of "50 Baby Bootees to knit". I've picked up the stitches, but did not do it in a very neat fashion. I cut yarn at least twice. I have two questions.
My first question is I had the first 12 sititches on the needle, then along the side of the foot I picked up 13 more. Next do I pick up the stitches that already exist on the toe? Or do I make new stitches there? Ok second question. Do you pick up the next set of stitches along the other side of the foot with the same needle?
