Best way to join the yarn to stitches from a stitch holder


I’m working on my first sweater for a child and after finishing the left front portion, the pattern tells me to now work on the BACK portion. I’m supposed to put the stitches from the stitch holder back onto the needlesand begin knitting again. My question is - what is the best way to join the yarn to the stitches to start knitting again? Do I just tie the working yard onto the first stitch?

Thanks for any help that can be offered


I leave a 4"-5" tail when I start. Then later I’ll go back and weave it in.


Leave a tail and just start knitting with the yarn.

Ok, thanks so much.
