Baby booties

I'm attempting to knit my first pair of baby booties, but I'm having trouble understanding the pattern.

I've got the toe cap, but I can't figure out how to transition into the sides. Here's where I'm at:

Toe Cap:
Cast on 9 sts.
Work 12 rows even in seed st pat.
Cut yarn.

Cas on 16 sts.
With RS facing, pick up and knit 8 sts even spaced along right side of toe cap piece, work in seed st across 9 sts of toe top, pick up and knit 8 sts evenly spaced along left side of toe cap piece, cast on 16 sts.

So, pretty much everything after I cut the yarn doesn't make sense. Can someone please explain how I'm picking these 8 sts up???
