You can use 1 large button or 2 or 3 smaller buttons. Button placement is entirely up to you. I folded down my flap and sewed a button on the flap it’s self and made a chain length to suit the button size for fastening.
Another option is to sew the buttons under the flap area so the opposite end of the neck warmer sits under the flap. Enjoy the pattern
