Can someone help explain Wandering Aran Fields to me?

Ok, I understand the main body piece. I'm ok with knitting the edges for the buttons and button holes and then connecting that onto the main body along the collar. But when are the button bands ever attached down the front of the body? It seems as though they are only connected along the neck in the directions.

    They're seamed to the edges of the body at the same time you seam them to the neck.

    But you never seam the neck - you just put them all on the needle and start making the collar. I know I'm going to have to seam them, I just wish the pattern would mention when or how.

    It's an errata that hasn't been posted on the Interweave web site yet.

    The very last line of text on page 66 was supposed to start with something like, "Sew bands to front edges," but it accidentally got clipped from the final layout.

    If you prefer, you can also sew the bands to the body before starting the collar so the bands aren't dangling loose while you work the collar.

    Ok, so at least I'm not crazy and I haven't lost my reading comprehension skills! Thanks!

    It's been so long I forgot that part!

    Just use a regular mattress stitch and it'll look perfect.

    I knit this way back in February of 2006 and I just knit the band on as I went along. The front band will have exactly the number of rows as the body, so it's a no-brainer. I highly recommend it as it made for a clean finish and was easy.
