I am unsure as to
A. HOW to pick up these stitches?
B. WHERE to pick up these stitches? (what row?)
C... I am sure there is more but I just don't know how to put it into words

First, what an awesome pattern! I wish I'd had these when my daughter was a baby.

To answer in order:

A. Watch the video Ingrid recommends.
B. When you look at the diagram for the diaper, the dots point the way for you. Pick up a stitch per dot, and for the crotch edge, pick up one st per row, either 12 or 14 depending on the size you're making.

Good luck and congratulations on the new baby!
