Knitting pattern dilemma

I’m knitting a helmet with ear flaps. Flaps are already done and on a stitch holder (7 sts). I am now knitting the main section. Pattern says, 'Cast on 8 sts (done), with rs facing and using same needle and yarn knit across 7 sts of one ear flap. How do I get the ear flap off the stitch holder onto the kneedles? HELP!

You can take the stitch holder in your left hand and use it like a needle. Then just knit the sts off the st holder. If the sts are held on some waste yarn, slip them onto a needle and knit them off onto the needle with your cast on sts…
