    Pen Tool Outline - To join, you must select two open endpoints

    doydy Level 1

      Hi

       

      I am trying to trace an image and include some detail within the trace.  I am kind of unfamiliar with proper use of the pen tool, but the image below shows where I have got to.  I have traced two parts, but when I try join the points I get the "to join, you must select two open endpoints" message.  To try and combine them I have tried all the pathfinder tools but to no avail, they do not convert these points so they are able to be joined..

      The obvious way around this is just to move the point (highlighted in red) ontop of the other, but this seems like a workaround/a bit unprofessional.

       

      Here is an image of the overal drawing so far

      Any help on this is much appreciated, thank you
