A Very Canadian Tat-a-Long Day 2

Day 2 is a little bit longer with a couple twists and turns.  If you would like to keep things short and simple then when done tatting Day 2 add a tassel to the final ring.  However, if you would like to make something a little bit bigger then make 3.

The spot of dirt on the right didn't
show up until now.  Please ignore it lol!

C- chain
R- ring
vsp- very small picot
lj- lock join.  Make a lock join by using a crochet hook to pull shuttle thread through the joining space.  This creates a loop and you pass the shuttle through the loop then tighten to remove excess thread.  In these patterns a lock join is often joined to the space between chains.  Where to do the lj is indicated in brackets.  For example lj (C2 & 3) means a lj in the space between the 2nd and 3rd chain.
rw- reverse work; turn the tatting towards you to change the direction the chain is facing
SCMR- self closing mock ring.  See for instructions.
slt- shoe lace trick
