Fasten off yarn leaving a very long tail. Turn the cowl and at the beginning edge of your foundation chain row, sew a button on the very last stitch- parallel to your edge with the long tail. Next, turn to where you left the long tail and chain enough chains to fit your button. Enter the last stitch of the row, which is where you chained and slip stitch in this stitch. This is now your button hole. Weave in any ends that are hanging. Now you can rock like the Doctor!
This cowl is easy to do and you can do your own color scheme instead. Normally the official Doctor Who scarf is knit garter stitch using 60 stitches, however, we are doing 30 stitches in crochet for an updated look. I also shortened the color scheme to include all of the colors but at less rows fitted for a cowl. Enjoy!
