First baby cardigan...stuck with stitch holder!


I am a beginner knitter and I am knitting my first baby cardigan. The pattern says to place the back part of the sweater WS on a stitch holder and continue with the right front which is also on a stitch holder. My problem is, my working thread is with the back on the stitch holder so how do I continue to with the right front? Have I done something wrong?

Thanks for your help!! :slight_smile:

I don’t think so. You can cut the yarn leaving about a 6" tail and start knitting with a new yarn end on the right front. Do you have a link to the pattern or a pattern name?

I can’t post the link because this is my first post, but the name of the pattern is Rose Lichen Cardigan And Hat from

Ah, it’s knit cuff to cuff. Very cute and fun to knit. The advice still applies: cut the yarn used for the back, leaving a tail and put the sts for the right front onto the needles as the pattern directs. Use a new end of yarn to knit the right front/

Thank you so much! :slight_smile:
