You pick up the strand of yarn that goes from one stitch to the next on the previous row(round). It's also important that you knit through the back of this stitch.

There is a video of how to do this at knittinghelp.com (love that site!). It's referred to as a "M1L" or "Make One Left", in their idiosyncratic labeling of increases, but it's really easy to do.

I would highly recommend watching the video or having someone show you how to do a M1. Like others have said, it's not hard, but the direction you knit into the strand below is critical to how much of a hole there will be below it (or not, if done correctly).
