I'm knitting this hat (for those of you who have Stitch 'n Bitch, it is the "Adults-only devil hat on pg. 166) that is knit on 3 needles in the round. While working on it, I came along to a part in the pattern that says to "turn". But it doesn't say what to turn... it just says "turn". Accually, it says to do this quite a few times so I'm guessing it's important. Is this something that has to do with the fact that it is knit in the round?? I've asked around and so far everyone is puzzeld, including myself. If anyone of more knitting experience knows what they mean, I'd be grateful.

I'm finishing up the kitty hat right now and I looked up the instructions you're asking about.
The turns have nothing to do with the part of the pattern that you are knitting in the round. The turn part in the pattern is referring to the  ends of the ties not the main part of the hat. When you come to the tail ends you are finishing off the I cord. Then to finish the ends you would be working with 2 double pointed needles, so you would turn the knitting just as you would as if you working single point needles.
Good luck and I hope this helps!
