If I am understanding the pattern correctly, you do not skip any stitches at the beginning of the rows. You go into the first stitch correct? And each row ends with a slip stitch and turning chain.

Are the buttons just for decoration? Also are ends sewn together so cowl has to go over your head rather than using buttons to fasten
