Picking Up Stitches - Making A Purse
Help...I am making a purse (from the Pursenalities book) and I've cast on 15 rows and completed the garter stitch for 24 rows. The next step in the pattern is to "pick up the stitches on the remaining sides" and I believe end up with 60 stitches (not exactly sure since I don't have the pattern right in front of me). Can someone shed some light on this instruction? I've looked up "picking up stitches" in some of my reference books, but it seems to be referring to collars and seams...
