how to create the arm hole for the cardigan crochet

Shape armhole.

Lay the piece of rectangle in flatted and fold each corner inward until they meet then using your yarn needle to seam the corner with your prefer method ( I used whip stitch) and leaving  holes for the arm. For the arm holes I leave my one about 5.5 inch or your prefer length.

Repeat for the other side.

For the edging/collar.

For the collar we will worked along the edge of the opening of the cardigan back and forth in rows with Hdc in third loop only. Start at the bottom front corner of the cardigan where the first stitch marker place, working around the back of the neck  to the bottom front corner on the other side where the second stitch marker place. (See photo below.)
