that was my reason for asking for the pattern link:
Magic loop works in the round. But turning does not (usually) go with working in the round, and patterns with short rows worked in the round are not really usual (but may happen, of course).
Since the pattern is not fully available, I can only tell that the Skill-Section says that knitting with magic loop is needed.
I do not know if it is needed for the project through-out, or if it just needed for a part somewhere.
But I found the pattern on Ravelry.com and there are 6 projects for it. Maybe you should ask one of those knitters, since they all own the pattern. Ravelry.com is a free site. Once you are signed in, you can follow this link:
One person there wrote this, so there is knitting in the round:
Had to go down to size 6 needle to get guage. Iím loving the pattern and instead of using magic loop am using 2 circular needles. Boot #1 30% done.
