Sounds like an interesting project where you would chain so many before joining in a circle.

Two suggestions -- both based on my knitting background.

One would be carefully straighten out your chain on a flat surface like a table before joining. When you work your first round, be careful that you do not twist your chain during your work. Sometimes I get disoriented and insert my hook into the back of the chain thereby creating a twist in my chain.

The other thought would be to work your chain and make a row of sc before joining. This will make a slightly thicker length that will be easier to keep from twisting.
