This is a fast bind-off which I really like.
It’s a good stretchy bind-off for beginners. To be more exact -- it is very stretchy for binding off on Stockinette stitch, and moderately stretchy on ribbing.
It also looks decorative, which is unique and unusual for the standard bind-offs.
- Insert L needle tip into 2 front loops of sts on R needle.
- Wrap the yarn and k the sts together.
- Repeat steps 2-4 across.
- Cut yarn and pull through last stitch.

Keep in mind that this bind-off will roll on Stockinette stitch. Just plan on that being a feature of the bind-off — maybe knit a couple extra rows before binding off to make up for the roll.
This bind-off would be nice on something like fingerless mitts, where the moderate stretch and decorative rolled look would work well.
