I think you leave one side of the neck unseamed until you knit the neck band. It says knit for 5 rows, so it's flat, not in the round. Then you seam it up with the other shoulder seam. You could seam both shoulders together first and knit the neckband in the round if you want. I think it would look better by avoiding the seam on the band.
