I had a lightbulb above my head!
It must be all the good karma you all sent my way, I'm sure! So yesterday I read through the comments you left here ... and had the ideas brewing inside my head ... then all of a sudden, I got it! Yes, there are clear indications where to join the edging stitch with the stole stitches in the chart which I am aware of all the time. And yes, I have been reading the instructions with a preconception in my head. I read "Beginning by joining the edging to the open sts of the 2nd border, work starting rows a-d, then work rows 1-20 six times ... " as asking me to join the provisional cast-on row to the 2nd border BEFORE I start knitting row a. But anyway, after some re-configuration of my brain, I understand what I need to do now. This is proof:
I am now about to turn the corner and move on to one longer side of the stole. Since I have shortened the stole by omitting one central panel repeat, I may have to manipulate a bit to accommodate the edging repeat for the corners. Don't know how to do that yet ... but if I can't figure it out, I think I'll just write about it here and beg for your good karma again! :D Thank you so much! :D
