Start near the unseamed shoulder, and pick up or knit all around the neck. There's a video on the Advanced Techniques page (or Tips, forget which). Pretend the edge is your left needle and insert the R needle into the edge st (pick up) wrap the yarn around it and pull it through (knit). when you get to the sts on the holders, just knit them, then go on to the next section where you need to pick up the sts.

ok, so I tried that, but it says to do it on the rs... which means I would have to do it... backwards... I tried doing it on the purl side, but all the seamy-messiness turned up on the good side :( I would have to knit it with the needle in the left hand going left to right... instead of my normal right to left :( is there a video tutorial for it or another way to go about doing it?

No... with the RS facing it's as if you're doing a RS row, from the beginning. I may have misunderstood, it's the left shoulder that's open. So start there, go down the neck, across the front, up the right neck and across the back. The video on picking up stitches is here.

apparently I put together the left shoulder seam instead of the right... woops... that should make it easier..
