I was able to cast on with the provisional cast on for the Neckband, but from there, (once I had the 7 stitches on my needle, I couldn't figure out how do do the rest.
Does anyone know or is there an easier method?
Following are the directions:
Neckband: With waste yarn and crochet hook, use thecrochet chain provisional CO method (see box) to CO 7sts. Set-up row: K2, p1, k1, p1, k2. Work 40 rows as foll:Sl 1 pwise wyf, [k1, p1] 2 times, k2. Next row: (WS) Withsame side of work facing you, rotate piece so selvedgeat end of row just completed is uppermost. Bring yarn tofront. Skipping the first slipped selvedge st closest to theneedle, *wyf, insert right needle from back to front underboth legs of next slipped selvedge st, wrap yarn aroundas if to purl, and draw up a purl st onto right needle; repfrom * 19 more times—20 sts picked up and purled fromselvedge of piece; 27 sts total. With same side of work
still facing you, carefully unzip the provisional CO at baseof piece and place 7 live sts onto left needle, correctingst mounts as necessary. Work across these 7 sts as k2, p1,k1, p1, k2—34 sts.

I am so glad you posted your plea for help! Sorry I'm not the one to help you because I'm in exactly the same boat you're in! Not a clue of how to progress. Apparently no one else has any more info, judging from the dirth of helpful hints posted to your (our) plea. Three years?
I'll keep checking back to see if anyone else figures it out.
Oh wow, that's a long time to wait for an answer. Sometimes these questions just get buried.
As I understand it, you've also done the provisional cast on and now you have 7 loops on your needle in your working yarn with a line of crochet chain hanging off them in scrap yarn? This video may help. It's a tab for a shawl. The details of the pattern may be different (thi tab is in garter stitch) but the idea is the same. In your case you'll be using the loops created by the provision cast on too.
