Creating neckband... say what?
Hello all,

I'm knitting a baby sweater and I've finally done the blocking. Now comes the knitting of the neckband. I'm confused. Can somone tell me what this means...?

With RS of work facing K8 from right front st holder. Pick up and K19 sts up right front neck edge to shoulder. K27 from back st holder dec 2 sts evenly across. Pick up and K19 sts down left front neck edge. K8 from left front st holder.

How do you pick up the stitches you've already made in the pieces when they appear already finished? I'm not sure how to pick them up from the edge of a row I guess.

One more thing (just one?) after I've got that part done, I'll get to the buttonhole band. When I get to the buttonhole row, pattern says Rib 3 sts YO. K2tog... What does yarn over mean?

Once again, thanks to those who can decipher for me.
