You slip a piece of waste yarn through the stitches of the thumb to be saved for later. When you continue knitting the hand part, the thumb will fold (which is why you can't use a stitch holder).

Just thread a blunt-tipped needle and pull it through the stitches as they come off the needle.
"Trust the pattern!"
