The URL you gave was incomplete. I'm guessing this is the pattern you are working on:

Here's how I might do it:

Make a slip knot. Slide the wire of the paper clip into the KNOT itself (not the loop). Insert the hook into the LOOP.

To work an sc, insert the hook BELOW the wire, yarn-over-hook and pull up a loop (so the yarn wraps around the wire). Then yarn-over-hook ABOVE the wire and draw through both loops as usual.
