    Using pen tool to draw a particular shape...

      Hi all,

       

      I'm pretty new to Illustrator and just wanted some advice.

       

      I'm using the pen tool to try and draw a specific shape (https://www.me.com/ro/andrew.holland/Galleries/100011/photo_1/web.jpg?ver=12743534350001) but finding it hard trying to 'smooth' out the points where I connect my lines.

       

      The pen tool can't draw this all in one go, so when I try to do it in several stages, the lines don't connect up smoothly so it looks a bit... rubbish.

       

      Anyone got any tips or how to do this simply? Sorry if this is a total idiotic question but, I'm trying...!

       

      Cheers
