I'm making this dishcloth and had no trouble doing the first three triangles. Right now, I'm on row two of the pattern, where I'm supposed to pick up a stitch from the first triangle, knit some stitches together and knit to the end of the row. My needle however is facing way away from the first triangle. In the picture, the first triangle is to the left and successive triangles were added counterclockwise.
How do I pick up stitches from the first triangle?
