Slip stitches on and off a stitch wire:

In this video tutorial, we show you how to put stitches to rest on a stitch wire, and how to put them back on your knitting needle, when you are ready to continue knitting with the stitches, that you have put to rest. This is relevant when you need to set e.g. sleeve stitches to rest while you finish knitting the body.

This technique is a very useful and easy way to put stitches to rest and it is easy to learn.
