Mermaid: Center Gusset on Back

I'm working through the lines on this one for my spreadsheet and I'm not exactly sure what to do with the collar edge stitches. The pattern says "edge sts as for plain gussets", but the plain gussets have edge stitches at the hem, which is a different stitch pattern. Is there to be no fancy edge stitches at the back of the neck? Any ideas? Maybe this will be more clear when I start knitting?

I don't have the pattern in front of me now, and it's been a long time since I knit mermaid, but I think you can skip fancy stitches at that point because the collar will be folded over and stitched to the body at the top of the middle gusset. Does that make sense when you compare to the pattern?

Yeah, it does. Which is how I treated it now. If I see a good reason to do it differently when I knit it, I might.

There is a bit of stockinette along the neckline.
