I am finishing and knitting teh 10 inches of neckband.  Why are the back stitches on a holder?  Are they just sewn to the 10 inches of neckband? I can not find where they are dealt with. 

Please advise, thanks,

AH figured it out.  Pretty obvious when I looked.  Oops!

Love this sweater, as does my daughter for whom I'm making it, and am at the finishing stage.  I'm sure I've read the pattern poorly, but the instructions say to knit the neckband "in patt" - and I'm not finding what pattern they mean?  Looks like it's the K9, [p1,ptbl] 4 times, k9; followed by mirror on purl side, but I'm not sure....  Can someone please help?
