Re: need help with a pattern from "cherished babies&quo

My question for this is What does "turn" mean??
In Vogue knitting this is in the short row section....I know this book is written by a brit....does that factor in??
Thanks for all the help in advance.....

I think "Turn" means to act as if you've just finished knitting that entire row. For example at the first turn:
K19 sts, now turn the work purl 9 sts as if the remaining 10 sts don't exist ... the remaining sts might need to go on a sts holder until the pattern gives further directions for those sts.

I've never made any booties, but my sweater pattern called for me to do something similar this weekend. I had 133 sts. The pattern read K62 sts, put remaining sts on sts holder, turn and work 1 row in pattern. I didn't have to worry about the sts on the sts holder until I was finished with the initial 62 that I had knitted.

I hope that helped a little :?
