Use the needles as if they were straight ones. You are supposed to turn it around and go back with the next row.

I just started this and am confused as to why use circular needles. It appears to me that it will end up as a tube and not a rectangle or square. Am I suppose to reverse how I hold the needles with each row?

Hi Member 8267879, For this pattern, you will be using circular needles much the same was as you use straight needles. The pattern calls for circular needles just to accommodate the large number of stitches. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
