Help! Transfer stitch to waste yarn

Need to transfer 17 gusset sts to waste yarn.
There’s gotta be a trick to this.

Just put a length of yarn on a yarn needle and thread it through the stitches. I’d make the yarn a foot long or so.

You can also use a stitch holder, but I find them awkward to knit around myself.

That’s what I wound up doing. Now I’m trying to figure out how to get them back on the dpns, "rejoin sts, and pick up and knit 3 sts from cast-on edge of palm

These are faux cable fingerless gloves by Sandi Rosner, Season 4, Episode 8 of Knit & Crochet Now. The pattern is available for download if you sign up at their website, but beyond that, I can’t copy & paste any of it.

Are you just trying to put the gusset on the dpns, or are you working on continuing the hand portion?
