Joining collar of sweater issue

I am a fairly experienced knitter, but I am knitting a sweater(my first time ever knitting a sweater) for my boyfriend and I am having an extremely hard time understanding the directions for joining and creating the neck/collar. Help would be greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

Can you tell us the pattern name and can you quote just the collar directions? Don’t give us the whole pattern or even a large portion of it since it gives the forum copyright problems.
