Who-Ville Disk Ornaments



     While trying to figure out what to do with my massive stash of mis-matched scraps, I came up with this ornament pattern. They are very easy to work up, so you could make an entire set of the in an afternoon.
     With all the funky colors I used, my family decided the ornaments looked like they belonged on the the Christmas Trees of Who-Ville. Now all I need is a funky looking tree to hang them on =>



Supplies:
     4.25 mm crochet hook
     multi-color worsted weight yarn
     solid color worsted weight yarn that coordinates with the multi-color yarn
     stitch marker
     scissors

Abbreviations Used:
     Rnd(s) --- round(s)
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     slp st --- slip stitch

Notes:
     --- Be sure to move the stitch marker up as you complete each round.
     --- To make sure your yarns coordinate with one another, select a single color from the multi-color yarn to use as you solid color.
