Surface crochet: With Cherry Red, make a loop and lay it over the sc on the second row of the semi-circle, and inserting the hook right in between it and the next sc, pull up thread and complete a slip st, continue all across, molding the cahin to the roundness of the piece. Continue till you have 5 chain rows. Fasten off.
Take the measuring tape and measuring from the edge of the semi-circle upward, measure 10 inches. Sew button there. On the opposite side of neck warmer, at the height of the button, make a buttonhole as follows: With B crochet hook and Burgundy, join yarn to edge of neck warmer with a slip st. Ch 3, skip 1 dc on the neck warmer and join the loop with a slip stitch, then work 4 sc on the loop, over the ch sts, sl st on next dc. Fasten off. Adapt this to the size of your chosen button.
I chose to use a small button, but you can use any button you like, even a yarn one made by yourself, depending on how causal your use of the neck warmer will be. If you are giving it away as a gift, as I am, you can make the button as discreet as I have done or as fancy as your preference will make it.
