picking up stitches
I'm knitting the buttonhole bag , and just finished the strip that forms the bottom of the bag. The pattern states: With the right side facing, pick up and knit 30 stitches, ending at the stitch before the center of the cast-on edge. Place marker, then pick up another 30 stitches, ending at the center of the bound-off edge, and place another marker, so that you can tell this is the start of the round. My question is, where do you start picking up stitches--is this around the entire bag? Then, do you join when the pattern says to "knit one round"? I'm sure this is simple, but I don't get it. ( You only cast on 3 stitches, and bind off 3 stitches so that both ends are mitered.)

Thanks,
