I found this pattern for a afghan in the current knit it! magazine. It's for an easy striped afghan (pg. 70). I'm reading and it says to use a Size 9" circular needle (which I have) but I'm confused as to how to knit a flat afghan with circular needles.
The problem I see is that when I get to the end of a row there has to be a way to keep from "attaching" the rows end to end or else it's going to be a circle blanket, and I'm pretty sure that it's not. I've looked at a few places on-line but I can't seem to find an answer. So hopefully someone here can tell me. I've run into a few afghan patterns that call for circular needles, so I guess i need to learn how to do it so I can make some of the others that I want to make.
Thank you for your help,
