OT - I have a crochet question. Can someone help?
I am starting to teach myself to crochet and have come across a pattern I want to try. It is done in rounds, rather than rows. My question is: Do I turn the work at the end of each round or do I do I continue on in the same direction as before?

Thank you so much for any help you can offer.

You do not turn your work - you will work with the same side of your piece facing you at all times. Same as with knitting in the round.

You can do round/squares either way.
You could even do a tube with turning but it wouldn't be as easy if it was a small tube.

Stitches give a different look depending on if they're worked in the same direction or turned. Not turning also gives a right side/wrong side to the stitches.

The pattern should tell you if it wants you to continue in one direction or if it wants you to reverse directions.
I would assume if it doesn't say turn it doesn't want you to turn.

BTW, there's a crochet forum a little bit down the list.

Sometimes in rounds, the pattern will tell you to turn. Most often though, it will say "join to first stitch" or something similiar. I have a baby bootie pattern that is worked in rounds, but tells you not to join. Trust your instincts and trust the pattern.
