I agree with the others. The jacket itself does not look like a knit jacket. If you are making the whole thing from scratch, it may be possible to knit and attach the collar separately. But I think CapsuleCorp's idea of stitching the lines into fabric will probably give you the best look for the least amount of headache. One of my sweatshirts has a very similar looking collar and it's not knitted. Then again the fabric is not very slippery so the stitches get "eaten" by it, leaving these valleys that resemble ribbing.
