Santa & Elf Hot Pads HELP

Question

I just bought the Handmade Crochet Holidays magazine.

They have a pair of hot pads made with thread.  They are an elf and Santa.

I am having trouble with getting started.  Here are the first 9 rows. I understand the 40 chains, then you slip stitch down and then do 40 more chains and slip stitch down  Now it tells you to join in first chain.  How can you join to first chain, when you are in the middle of the 80 chains?  I am so confused.

Can anyone help?????????

That is great.  It looks just like the picture in the magazine.  I did not get a chance to work on this over the weekend, as I had to start the tote.

Krys you make it looks so easy.

Granny Square I love the pattern you posted.  I may end up going with that.

I knew you guys could help.

Thank you Mary Jo:)

Is the magic potholder the same as the one granny squares posted from Ravelry?

I will have to get a picture of the elf.

Mary Jo, you could probably use the row counts on your pattern, but work it flat.  You could still start in the middle; just make the hat/pompom side "up" and the face/beard side "down".  Starting in the middle (IMO) helped me keep mine square, since I wasn't following a pattern just eyeballing where the colors should change.  My flat pic photo has an odd perspective, it really is square.

Yep, the one I posted was titled Magic Potholder, but I've seen several versions of the pattern.  I thought the one I picked had some clear photos.
