circular knitting question
I'm confused. The instructions for the project I'm working on says to "turn your work, you will no longer be knitting in the round". I knit english style or thow over style and do not understand how to turn the work and still have the yarn on the right side. I hope I'm making sense. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sandy

ps - the pattern also calls for binding off about 10 stitches using the backwards loop method. Anybody ever hear of this?

You turn your work, just as if you were knitting flat and turning for a new row. It doesn't matter which way you knit. The left needle goes to your right hand, the right needle goes to your left hand, and you work back across.

For the bind-off, I can't help you. I've heard of casting on with the backwards loop, but not binding off. If you can link to the pattern, or provide a bit more of the directions, it could be helpful

Turn your work as if you were at the end of a row like knitting flat. The yarn will be on the tip of the left needle and just work the WS row.

I thought binding off and casting off were the same thing?

I've never heard of a backward loop bind off, but I found this. Havn't read thru the whole thing yet, but it might be what they're talking about:

They are, I said I only knew the backward loop cast ON. Easy mistake to make, I know LOL. I had to check I hadn't mis-typed it!
