i just made fortune cookies where i had to turn and the turn was like this: knit to the last stitch the pattern calls for (say stitch 4 of 6 or whatever...), bring the yarn to the front, slip a stitch from the left needle to the right one like you're purling, bring the yarn back to the back, slip the stitch back to the left needle, turn the work so you're looking at the back, put the yarn to the back and knit back down to the begining of the row.
idk if thats the same thing that you're doing tho... would it make sense to do that??? i don't know. like i said, i just learned that, and i never turned before, and i'm new too... so... idk... you can google it and see if you get a tutorial vid too. i do that like.... A LOT!!
