Pattern help

I am a knitting newbie…intimidated by this pattern, but dying to try it. I am new to circular needles. When it says “Do not join, sole is worked back and forth”… does that mean I turn the needles as I would with straight needles?
I have read the pattern probably 50 times (I’ve had it since Nov)… just now casting on today. I’ll probably have more questions.


You’ve got it! Just knit like you have two separate needles.
