Need Help....

Can anyone help with this pattern? I'm more than half way done with these booties and I'm stuck on the upper/toe joining. For some reason I can't seem to get this part. Seems a bit confusing. Maybe it will be one of those 'light bulb moments.' Any help would be appreciated.

I couldn’t help but notice others are having trouble with this bootie pattern. I first saw it on the TV show at that time called “Knit and Crochet Today” on episode 216. The pattern can be downloaded there. I was hoping there might be a video of the project, and I think there will be soon, but I also know the show is a labor of love and the good folks putting it together are struggling valiantly to produce the show and make the planned improvements to the site, so this project might need to be put aside for a bit, I’m pretty sure there will be another baby sometime down the road, and this one already got a blanket.
