I do not understand what to do at this point
Hello Everyone,

I'm knitting the Fiber Trends pattern "the Sheep Tote" shown here;
http://fibertrends.com/viewer/patterns/AC64x.htm

I finished knitting the base of the tote and I understand the idea of
the following instructions yet I can not figure out how to carry them out.

FYI I am knitting on cicular needles and have knit back and forth at this
point.

Knit 1 more row (did that), do not turn (ok).
Rotate work and knit up 15 stitches (basicially the short side of the tote) across end.


I have tried to insert the empty needle and knit but nothing ends up on
the needle when I do that.

I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. If not, in about 4 hours
I can get to a camera and post pictures that will help. Let me know if
I should.

I feel a bit embarrassed when I post questions here. I have a pattern
yet I can't figure it out. However, I'm so glad to have this forum as
I always get great support here. Thank you all for that and specially
Ingrid, she's the sweetest!

PS I hope this isn't rude but I would love a free pattern that is similar
to this one; http://fibertrends.com/viewer/patterns/AC76.htm

I've already bought 3 patterns from Fiber Trend and fell in love with a
top they have and will buy that someday but I've bought a lot of bag/
purse patterns and most end up not being what I want so I'm kind of
hoping I can get a similar one for free.

Ooooooooooh I felted my first felt yesterday! A hat by Fiber Trends,
I can't find the picture at Fiber Trends but I will post a picture on my
blog when I can. I wanted to picture the before and after but the camera
had another date. (realizes she's rambling too much and stops typing)

What it wants you to do is pick up stitches from the side of the piece you just made. Insert your needle into the corner stitch and yo. Then pull your stitch (the yo) through the fabric and you have a stitch on the right needle. Continue across the edge until you have 15 stitches. Go here - http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...iques/misc.php and scroll down to the video for `Picking Up Stitches'.

If you have trouble grabbing the yarn with the point of your needle to pull it through for picking up stitches, use a crochet hook to grab it and put it on your needle.

AND LISTEN UP!!!! DON'T EVER, EVER, BE EMBARASSED ABOUT ASKING A QUESTION!!!!!

Sorry to yell--but it is so important. Something simple to someone who's done it may seem impossible to someone who's new. PLEASE don't hesitate to ask something 'simple.' We all had to learn these things one way or another. You have a place here where people are ready, willing, and able to help, so take advantage of it.

I got it!
I'm a bit thick headed I think and I also made the mistake of
reading between the lines. However I do think they could have
worded it better in the pattern.

I thought I did something wrong after picking up the side stitches
and I riped them. Then I realized they wanted me to continue
to pick up stitches ALL the way around. I was thinking I should
(would be able to) knit after those first 15 stitches.

I had to use a crochet hook on a few stitches but for the most
part I did fine with the knitting needle.

Thanks everyone! I'm excited about this project again.

Also, someone else might have the exact same question! That way, you'd be helping yourself and a friend.
