Pick up and knit along top edge?!?

I’m knitting some booties, and the pattern says to pick up and knit 30 sts along top edge of bootie for the cuff. I’ve never really understood what pick up and knit meant. please help :shrug:

Check out this tutorial

There is a video here (under assorted topics) that shows how to pick up stitches.

Here is a set of directions with pictures.

There are tips on this page (look for Christine L) on how to pick up and knit.

Hopefully you’ll be able to figure it out soon! :hug:
