Christmas ornament from your old T-shirt (+ pattern)

In my previous blog post you will find how to turn your old T-shirts into yarn. As this yarn is more chunky, it is great for floor carpets etc. but why not use it for some Christmas decoration?!
You can make a flat Christmas ball, you can add some thin red ribbon and you are set in no time for your tree decoration in a few weeks time.

chain 5 on hook size 6 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch
Row1: ch 1, *2sc in every ch* finish with 1 sl st in first ch
Row2: ch1, *2sc in every sc* finish with 1 sl st in first ch
In most cases this might be enough, but in case of my brown yarn, the cotton fabric used was a lot thinner, so for this one I added a 3rd row.

Row3: ch1, *2sc in next sc and 1sc in following sc* finish with 1 sl st in first ch

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
