Hi again MaryAnn,
You should have a total of 5 double-point needles. At present you are using 4 needles - 3 are always carrying stitches, and 1 is always being knitted with.
From your pattern (and picture with comments below):
(1) With a new needle, pick up stitches (15 or 17 depending on which size you are making) from the area indicated by the green rectangle.
(2) Next knit across the area I indicated with the first blue rectangle (this is "Needle 1")
(3) Next knit across the area indicated by the third rectangle (this is "Needle 2")
(4) Next, pick up 15 (or 17) stitches along the edge indicated with the light blue rectangle (this is "Needle 3")
(5) On the same needle ("Needle 3") as in (4), knit 7 stitches from the area indicated by the second blue rectangle
Now you have 4 needles holding stitches. Now you need to use that 5th needle.
(6) With this last needle knit 7 stitches, and then knit up the 15 (or 17) stitches that you just picked up). This is now needle 4.
If you are having trouble with Amy's videos still, here is another great webpage/website with video, that clearly shows how to pick up those gusset stitches:
