Welcome th Knitting Help!
Yes, a pattern lilnk is always helpful or even a pattern name.
You should be ablt to lay these booties out on a table like an inverted T with the right side or outside of the bootie facing you. You want to re-join the yarn where the crossbar of the T meets the vertical leg and start picking up 11sts along the side of the instep (that's along the ends of the rows you've just knit), then knit across the sts at the end of the instep, pick up 11sts along the other side of the instep and then knit to the end of the row. You'll now have all the stitches from the cuff and the body of the bootie on the needle.
