cast back on after leg openings on dog sweater

i am making this dog sweater for a friend ... and i am stumped at the instructions for the leg openings ... i am up to the joining row where i put it all back together to knit from one ball but i am unsure of what to do

i have cast off the stitches to make the leg openings and now i have three balls of wool.

a) how do i cast back on? am i casting back on into the first stitch?
b) which ball of yarn do i use now? do i keep going from the first one and drop the other two?

Leg Openings: Next row: (RS). K5 (5-7-11). Cast off 4 (6- 6-10) sts. K36 (46-56-80) (including st on needle after cast off). Cast off 4 (6-6-10) sts. Knit to end of row.

Note: All Leg sections are worked at the same time using separate balls of yarn for each section.

Beg with a purl row, work 1 (1-1-2) ins [2.5 (4-4-6) cm] in stocking st, ending with purl row.

Joining row: K5 (5-7-11). Cast on 4 (6-6-10) sts. K36 (46- 56-80). Cast on 4 (6-6-10) sts. Knit to end of row. 54 (68- 82-122) sts.
