This is a free pattern, that I'm sharing with you. Please do not post this pattern as your own. If this looks a lot like a pattern you've seen before online, I'd like a link to that please. I went hunting for a pattern like this back on this article and never found anything. If you decide to make and sell, please credit me.
If there are any problems with this pattern, please comment so that I can update either terminology or stitch count etc.
For your yarn I recommend using Lily Sugar'n Creme cotton and an F/3.75 hook.

Use a yarn needle and put two lines of stitching in the middle of the center stitch and edges. Do not sew the edges shut as when you wash them, they won't be able to dry properly without the air flow.
"How does it stay it place?"
You can crochet simple ties using chain stitch, or even make wings. Fastening them with buttons or snaps. That's up to you.
