Use the ButterflyBraid technique on the 3 central loops of one of the short ends to create an edging.

Attach 3 buttons to correspond with the 3 loops on the other short edge.  The buttons do not need to be the size of the loop, you just need to be able to ‘catch’ the loop to keep it snug around your neck.

That’s all there is to it!
