Now what (what to do with earflap)

I am following this pattern, I just completed the first earflap and am ready to do the second. But what do I do with the first earflap? Cut the yarn (how long of a tail should I leave?) and stick the earflap on another needle I am not used so I can knit off of it later?
Thanks :slight_smile:

Yes, you can cut the yarn and leave a tail about 5 or 6 inches to weave in later. It can be longer if you’re more comfortable. Then you make the second ear flap, but you won’t be cutting the yarn after that one.
