The collar starts with a provisional cast on, which you can follow the link below for a tutorial, or you can opt to not have a double knit collar and cast on using your preferred method and knit for the desired length.

2020-02-07: Correction made to Chart B to correspond to the correct color
I am currently in the midst of knitting this pattern. I love this design for its bold, modern take on Fair Isle. It looks like a lot of thought was given to producing a pattern that is easy to read and follow. Seriously, this is not an easy thing to do, and this was achieved masterfully in this case. The tips I found on your website for colorwork were very helpful. Big kudos for that! Colorwork is tricky and many patterns don’t cover that at all. Note, however, that almost all links in the pattern pdf are broken, so I found those tips by searching your webpage directly. I am sure that when I am done with this pattern, it will produce a gorgeous garment. However, there will possibly be plenty of knitting and frogging before this project is completed. My sense is that the pattern’s weak spot is the separation of sleeves and body. On my first attempt to knit this pattern, I achieved gauge and matched my measurements to the advised size (M). Yet, the stitch counts for the separation produced and odd imbalance between impossible-to-wear narrow sleeves and a wide body. On my second attempt to knit this pattern I drastically dropped needle size to alternate between US 4 on the single color fabric and US 5 for the colorwork part. The split between body and sleeves will very likely involve pattern hacking. We’ll see where that goes :-) All and all, thank you for a beautiful design and a well-wrought pattern.
