You have the right idea that your foundation chain will be the center of an oval. If you have ever knitted items from the center out, this is the crochet equivalent.

After you do your first set of sc's, the instructions tell you not to turn because in standard crochet pattern-speak, turning means to go back over the stitches you just worked. Instead, you would be continuing with the same side of your work facing you to the other side of your foundation chain. You should see a lign of stitch tops and you will insert your hooks into these lines to work your 42 sc on the other side of your foundation chain.

If you need visuals, if Motherhen doesn't answer her with some of her fabulous demonstration links, post again in the Crochet forum.
