First knitting project

Im working on my very first project. A baby hat with ear flaps. I have finisshed the cap portion of the project and now Im starting the flaps. Ity says to measure 1 1/2 inches from center back and then using # double points, pick up 14 sts.from the bottom of project.CAN Somebody direct me to a video on how to do this. I am a visual learner and sometimes the words just confuse me even more.
thanks
