towel topper pattern done in 2 pieces, top part first then the bottom joins the top together forming the topper

I saw a towel topper that was done in 2 pieces, the top part first, the lady tried to tell me how to do it but I couldn't really understand her, basically it was a series of 5 chains up and then 5 chains down with 5 chains in between so it was a nice long stitch. She did say it was 10 wide and 8 high. Then she did the bottom half of the towel and as she went she joined the top part to the bottom, it sure was a nice looking topper. Does anyone out there have the pattern for this topper? or have any idea what I'm talking Any ideas would be really appreciated.
