How to continue knitting with stitches on holders

On a website found a knit pattern for a baby sweater. It tells me to put a number of stitches on a holder like 3 separate sections what does it mean when she wants you to continue knitting on the remaining stitches across the ones on holders?

Continue knitting remaining sts after placing them on holder.
by: Ratchadawan

I hope I understood it right. you want to continue knitting after you place certain number of sts on a holder, right? In that case, you want to join a new yarn and knit the rest of the sts after the holder. You can use a new ball of yarn of or if you only have one ball of yarn then you just cut the yarn right after the holder. Make sure to leave a little bit of tail so it won't fall apart.

I hope this is the answer you're looking for. Thanks for visiting and questioning.
