NO it's in the pattern. To turn the needle in the middle of the row. it's confusing on circs

If it's the spiral coaster linked to earlier I don't see where it says to turn.

I think she must be doing the one Antares posted.

It's meant to be done flat for a few rows then put on DPN (or done with another circular method.) If you intend to use magic loop I would put markers between the stitches that would normally be on the DPN. Then ot will be easy to know where you are.

The spiral one is confusing. What happens after 21 rows...AND it says to cast 6, 2 on each need, but use 5 dpns. that would be 10

You need to give more info. I'm not even sure what pattern you're doing so I can't help on part of your question.

I can say...10 what? DPN? It doesn't mean that, but tell us what pattern we can help more.

So sorry. I found a pattern link, I pasted it below. I think the problem is the increases if I try to do magic loop. Please let me know what you think. Thank you for patience!

There is no row 21. And it says a set of 5 needles is better...how does that make 10? 5 needles would be 4 holding stitches and one to work them. I thought you wanted magic loop??

Just to clarify on the spiral pattern, it calls for size 5 dpns. After row 21 you work one row of plain knit and then bind off using the size 8 dpns.
