I have just started learning how to knit and I have come across an easy pattern but i dont know what to do when it says "turn"
Can anybody help please?

I assume you are at the end of a row you had just knitted... so then you just physically turn your work so you can begin working the next row.

i think you may need to give us more info about what you are working on. is it telling you to do that at the end of a row or somewhere else? If it is at the end of the row it just wants to you to turn the work so you can start knitting again i would think.

This is the pattern. I am in row 6 but i dont know what to do next:
Cast on 31 stitches.
Row 1, row 3, and row 5: P across.
Row 2 and row 4: K across.
Row 6: K17, Sl1, K2tog, PSSO, turn.
Row 7: Sl1, P3, P3tog, turn.
Row 8: Sl1, K3, Sl1, K2tog, PSSO, turn.
Row 9: Sl1, P3, P3tog, turn.
Row 10: Sl 1, K3, Sl1, K2tog, PSSO, turn.
Row 11: Sl1, P3, P3tog, turn.
Row 12: Sl1, K 11.
Row 13 and row 15: P across.

Alternate K and P for ten more rows.
Cast off and sew seam.

Yep, you will just physically turn the work and then knit row 7 after you have turned it.

seems kind of odd that it would all of a sudden start telling you to turn the work but i think we have all seen patterns that were a little wonky!

Its called short row shaping. It allows you to kind of taper the edge. Leave those stitches on the needle, turn and just follow the pattern. I've found that if you do exactly what the pattern says and don't question it to much, things work out in the end. :D
