You would be working in the round instead of in rows. Does the next instruction say to 'join' and how and where?

Or maybe you are getting ready to work a border so you will start crocheting around the edges?

What are you making?

If you don't turn and crocheting in rows, most probably you have to crochet backwards.

There is a crochet stitch, called reverse single crochet. It's a little awkward to work, but it would fill the bill for not having to turn the work. However it might not work in the pattern you are currently using.

You can find videos on youtube that show you how to accomplish the stitch.

Reverse single crochet is great for a border, and it's one of my favorites, but I'm not so sure about how it would work as a row to be worked into.

Seeing the pattern that is causing trouble here would definitely be helpful.

There really isn't a pattern here to help with, if I'm following the posts correctly. sylvia is just looking for a way to make the blanket without having to turn it around at the end of a row

~emphasis is mine

If the reverse single crochet can't easily be worked in, then the simple answer for sylvia is, "you're just gonna have to keep at it."

sorry
