Collar buttons all the way up to the top to be worn as a cowl neck.
If you would like to wear the collar as in the photos, I would suggest working the row after the join for the collar as a RS row again (instead of a WS row) and establish a new RS to reverse the pattern. This way when open the collar will show the RS of the stitch patterns.
