I love long tail CO, but...
It is never stretchy enough, to me. So, browsing through YT vids and I find this lady doing a stretchy long tail CO the HARD way. So, I tweaked it, going to have my son record me doing it, and post it on YT

It does seem overly fiddley. Is it similar to German cast on, which does give a stretchier edge?

Yeah, I just went and found that video too. I think it's a different way to do the same thing. I really have to learn this one.

ETC (edited to clarify) I need to learn the German cast on in Amy's video.

Uh yeah...I'd just go with twisted German co. It's easier and quite stretchy. Also lots of videos including KH so no fiddling with making it up and then forgetting it.
