Okay. I don't know what it means to "join a round"
one pattern I have says to do it, and another says explicitly not to. But I don't know what it is!!!

You would join a round with a slip stitch: or it might say ss in directions see: www.stitchguide.com
When it ask me not to join rounds I will mark the first stitch of next round with peice of yarn of another color so that I know where Im at. Alot of times it will say you should end of with X amount of stitches after each round if you mark and count then you will know your right on with the directions.
Hope this helps.

But if you don't join the rounds doesn't it just make it a spiral or something? It doesn't look like a spiral in the picture because it's crocheted with a striped pattern design... but it also says specifically not to join the rounds

Nope when you knit on circulars and dont join its just like knitting with your usual needles
When you do the pattern with the join just make sure you dont twist your first cast on row
Also you will notice that the first row you knit will be realy tight , but dont worry
on your second row knitting is alot faster
hope that helps

Opps you were talking about crochet huh?
joining the round with a slip stich will just make it so you are working in a circle
If you have ever crocheted a granny square its the same
