help with Candy Floss Baby Bootees pattern

am working on Candy Floss Baby Bootees. Have done top of foot; am now at “main section”.
In order to Pick up 13 stitches from flap I will have to turn the needle sidewise to the left - and the to pick up next 14 stitches, will have to turn it back again - correct?

Welcome to the forum!
Yes, that’s correct.
