This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to use a stitch holder. This tool is often used to save a project for later, or setting aside some stitches during a project to be knit at another point. It can also be useful for retrieving needles that are in use if you need them for something else.
This is extremely easy. Take the stitch older, usually shaped like a large safety pin, and use the pointy end to slip the stitches you want to save for later onto it. Once all the stitches are on your holder, remove you knitting needle. Be careful to not split any stitches and make sure you don’t miss any.
