I am currently knitting a hat with Noro Taiyo yarn. I have looked at it for a long time and the colors are beautiful. BUT the yarn is not stretchy at all. The hat called for the daisy stitch which is Knit 3 together, yarn over, Knit 3 together in same stitch. This broke my fingers and hurt my elbow. I am used to using cheaper yarn and it has much more stretch to it. I did several rows of this stitch and then gave up and switched to a Knit 2 together, Yarn over. This was much easier on the hands. Hopefully, it will still look nice. I will post when completed. Look at the yarn though, it is a yummy colorway.
