Has anyone tried this block?

http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&faqKey=336

The first row of the pattern says:
Block 1 (top right) Foundation chain: Using yarn A, make a slip knot. Rnd 1 (right side): Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc 7 times into the slip knot, join with a sl st in top of beg-ch-3-- 8 dc. Turn.

What does it mean by "make a slip knot"? 

I was thinking of doing a baby blanket with this block but I can't even get off the ground with it since I can't get past the slip knot.

Thanks for any (and all) help!

making a slip knot:
wrap the yarn around your fingers, and pull a loop through. draw tight. it's an adjustable ring that serves basically as your first stitch.

This reply is possibly redundant, because I think Superchloe explained it very well, but still :-)

I think that if the pattern would have started from Rnd1 (so they would have left the sentence "Foundation chain: Using yarn A, make a slip knot." out of it), you wouldn't have found any problem at all whatsoever.

Good luck, it looks like a nice pattern.
