Now you need to fold the collar over and pin into place.
Fold more over on the middle approximately 6-7 stitches and then less at the edges to form the collar. This can be easier on a dummy or around someone's neck.
Once you have the collar where you prefer sew the collar into place.
You now need to add a hidden button. I added mine about 2 stitches in on the bottom collar and 13 rows up. You can pick the place you prefer.
On the reverse of the top layer of the cowl join yarn with a slip stitch and chain 7 (if you are using a larger button you may need to crochet more chains). Finish.
Your cowl is now finished :-)
