I am working on a tote and have completed the bottom of the bag which called to “co 40 sts and work in garter stitch for 5inches with a circular needle”. Here’s where I’m stuck.
For the first round, it says to knit 40 sts; pick up and k 20 sts across the short edge of the base; pick up and k 40sts along other long side; pick up and k 20 sts across rem edge. What does “pick up” mean? I can’t figure out what to do next.
Can anyone help?
