Can you use straight knitting needles instead of circular?
Simply use straight needles instead of circulars: knit when it says to knit; purl when it tells you to purl. On all even rounds, the stitches need to be reversed: wherever the circular knitting pattern says to knit, purl instead. And when the original pattern says to purl, knit the stitch.

Wrong Side (WS): The wrong side of your work is the back side of a piece of knitted fabric, opposite the right side, that is typically meant to be the less visible side when the fabric is complete. For example, in stockinette stitch, the right side is the side with the purl bumps of the stitches.
