Knitting chart/schematic
When knitting an afghan on circular needles do I follow the right to left reading of the chart on RS rows and left to right on WS rows? B/c I saw something that said if its circular knitting I should read all rows right to left regardless, but I figure that should only be the case if I actually joined the ends in a round, but since I actually turn the needles just as if I was knitting with straight needles I should read the schematic the way it is intended. R to L on RS and L to R on WS. I hope I didnt complicate that. Please let me know what I should do. Thanks.

Since you're knitting rows back and forth the circular needle is only used to hold all the stitches. That's not the same as using circular needles to knit in the round. So read the pattern R to L on the RS rows and L to R on the WS rows.
