A Very Canadian Tat-a-Long Day 3

Happy Canada Day
I was tempted this morning to do the whole post in red. I stiffled the urge since I didn't think you would be able to read the pattern.  We are so used to black.

Don't forget that tomorrow the 4th of July Tat-a-long will start.  I will likely be posting later in the day since I'm back to work tomorrow.  You will need red, white and blue thread. 

Cheers

Materials

white thread
2 shuttles or one needle
crochet hook

Terms
C- chain
R- ring
SR- split 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
LSC- lock stitch chain,
SCMR- self closing mock ring.  See http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/SCMR.pdf for instructions.
slt- shoe lace trick
