Three Needle Cast Off on Two Needles

Do you avoid this technique due to the awkwardness of trying to hang on to the three needles all at once?

Would you like to use this technique but you need an easier way?

First please review the normal version

Now for the make it easier trick.....take a smaller size DPN or circular needle. Transfer all of the stitches, one at time, alternating between the front and the back needle on to the new needle. Maintain the stitch orientation by slipping purl wise. Now do the cast off, knitting into two stitches at a time from the left hand needle. Less fuss, same result.
