The needle should look like it does whenever you're knitting. Take the vest in your left hand as if it were on your left needle, and insert your right needle into the stitch at the top of the left front edge (which is the side on your left if you were wearing it) and start picking up stitches. I'm sure there's a video in the Advanced Techniques section http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/ that would show you.
