Help with instructions
Hi All!

I am following the pattern for the bonnet found at the link I pasted here. I am totally lost on what to do with the bold instructions.

http://www.bernat.com/data/pattern/p..._set.en_US.pdf

Neck and chin band: Fold 5 sts along
front edge to RS and secure at cast on
and cast off edges. Thread yarn through
each st at shorter edge (back of Bonnet).
Pull tightly and secure yarn.


With RS of work facing, pick up and knit 37 (42-46) sts
along cast on and cast off edges (working
through both thicknesses at each end).
Cast on 14 sts. 51 (56-60) sts in total.
Knit 1 row.


Thanks for helping!

Thank you, the video helped on picking up stitches. I am still a bit confused as it says pick up and knit. Does this mean to first pick up and then to knit those stitches? Also, the pattern says to pick up and knit along cast on and cast off edges. Does that mean separately, or I am putting them together? And, if it is separately, am I starting at one end and working around to the other?

Thanks!

Pick up and knit is done in one step. Insert the R needle into the edge stitch (pick up), then wrap the yarn around the needle and pull it through (knit).

Thanks Sue, that totally makes sense. How about where the pattern says to pick up and knit along cast on and cast off edges. Does that mean separately, or I am putting them together? And, if it is separately, am I starting at one end and working around to the other?

This it the edging that goes around the neck of the bonnet. You've already gathered one garter stitch edge together to make the back of the bonnet so now the cast on and cast off edges make a continuous line along the neck of the bonnet. Now you're going to pick up along the cast on edge and then the cast off edge to make a kind of trim for the neck edge and to make the chin strap. So yes, you are starting at the cast on edge and working around to the cast off edge.
The "both thicknesses" that you work through is the folded area where you've folded back the front edge of the bonnet (about 5sts worth) to make a sort of turned up brim that frames the baby's face.
Cute set! Thanks for the pattern link.
