I'm guessing that I knit a rectangle and seam it up? How do I make the holes for the ribbon to go through?

maybe make button holes?

maybe look at what they did for the Tepmpting pattern (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTtempting.html)  That might do the trick.

You'd make eyelet to thread the ribbon through as yo, k2 tog every few rows. It's knit side to side in garter stitch and seamed up.

It looks like it's knitted loosely enough that the ribbon just goes between stitches.  Look at how it seems "dented" at the points where it enters the fabric.  Personally, I wouldn't bother to put in eyelets or button holes: I'd just use this as a piece of "mindless" knitting.

I joined the Fabric Fast and pledged to buy no new yardage until July 1, 2008.

2008 Fabric Purchased: 56 yards

Fabric Sewn: 93 yards

Fabric Remaining: An Awful Lot

I am open to personal swaps!

I think the ribbon is too thick for the holes. It's curled up, but if you look at a closeup view, the knitting looks flat with a hole. There's a lacy border which also looks like k2tog, yo.

it must have holes.  the description says it can be worn with or without the ribbon, so as a maker selling it that way, you'd have to make it pretty obvious where the ribbon goes back in if the purchaser decides they want to wear it both ways interchangeably.

Okay, I'll try doing the eyelets of yo, k2tog.

For the lacy border, is it added afterwards?

About how much do you think I should cast on?

I think it is just as you first thought...a rectangle sewn up the back.  If you click on the photo and then use the zoom tool, you can really see the detail.  It looks like the lower edge that others interpret as eyelets is just the selvedge of the knitted fabric with a little stretching (how it is put on the maniquin stretches the lower edge/selvedge of the knitting).  I also think that the ribbon is just run through the knitting...no eyelets or button holes.  I bet is is made from the bulky wool-ease.
