What is the meaning of "Worked Flat" and or "Working Flat"?

I’m new to Knitting and have been taking on-line classes. I have not come across this term worked flat. I cannot find a video on it either. This is mentioned 2 times in the pattern I have purchased

1st time in the gauge section 10cm [4"] 19st worked flat in st.st. on 5 mm
2nd time in the mask section. "The mask is worked flat in stocking stitch, starting with a purl row.

I appreciate help with this, I can’t seem to locate a definition.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Hi, “working flat” means working not in the round, on straight needles

Awesome, that is a big help. I appreciate it very much. Have a great day:slight_smile:
