Button Hole:

Using other end of the skein of yarn and starting on the outside edge, attach to row below by pulling up a loop, leaving enough tail end to weave in later
ch 1, sc 1, turn, 6 rows, cut tail long enough to weave in and then pull through the final loop
Pick up original loop
Ch 1, sc 3, 4 rows
Cut tail long enough to weave in and pull up through free loop, pulling tight.
Using one of the lower tails of yarn, weave to the inside edge of the button hole and up the inside edge to the center. Stitch one side at the center to the other inside edge of the button hole, turning one long hole into 2 button holes.

Contrast edge:
Pick up cc and sc all the way around the edge, sc inc 2 into each corner.
ss into first st, then cut tail and weave in ends

Match up ends to fit head, then sew on two buttons to tab end for closure.

Sew on crochet or fabric embellishments in a complimentary color scheme if desired.
