Crochet Bind Off

Since my first soaker (a Curly Purly out of Wool of the Andes wool), I've been testing out binding off methods. I wanted to find something that had some give to it, and I wasn't satisfied with simply binding off the "normal" way with larger needles. Then I stumbled upon the Single Crochet bind off and some directions (found here) that said to bind off two, chain one and voila... a very nice bound off edge that has plenty of give to it. At first I was trying to do everything with two knitting needles, but when I swapped the right needle for a crochet hook it got very quick and easy.
