using a stitch holder
Hi there...this is kind of a repeat question...
I have the back of my sweater done, and I have to put it
onto a stitch holder to be knit to the neck later on a circular needle. I cut the yarn? How much tail should I leave?
I am going to knit the front next, if that matters...
ps I only ask again because in your answer to me before Amy , you said cut the yarn if the back is done...if I have not knit the neck then its not done....right????

Hi Chris,

At some point you will need more yarn to do the neck. You can look ahead at your instructions, if you like. They'll probably have you start the neck from where you finish the front of the sweater, using that same yarn. In that case just cut the yarn for the back, leaving enough of a tail to sew a shoulder seam if you like. Really, I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you need to join in new yarn, especially at a seam, it'll be completely invisible and easy to join.

In any case, you'll need to cut the yarn at some point, so you can start the sweater front! LOL.
