There's a good video under Videos, Tips at the top of the page for picking up sts that may help. I use a crochet hook to pick up 12-15sts and then slide them off the back of the hook onto the needle. Continue like this until you've picked up all that you need. I've also seen advice to pick up as many sts as you can for a neckline and then adjust from there on the next row. Increase a few sts if you need more being the most common situation. I think that picked up sts always look better than you expect when you finally get them on the needle.
