stuck on pattern 197 rico baby dk - rib borders

pattern says to pick up 9 sts along rib then 70 sts along front edge then 5 sts on neck band. i dont have an obvious neckband unless i use pattern for round neck cardigan. i am doing the collared version.

Maybe this version. Can you quote exactly the directions for picking up sts all around the neck?
