What is the difference between flat knit and circular knit?

Circular knit fabric has a gauge of 12 to 22. The higher the gauge is, the thinner the fabric. Flat knit is made with a machine that knits the fabric in sheets (or flat) and the gauge is 2 to 10. Flat knit is thick sweater fabric like your grandma makes sitting in a rocking chair with two needle-sticks.

Is a round the same as a row in knitting?
