I'd use a provisional cast on as salmonmac suggests and then use it for the 3 needle BO. If you know you're going to use that BO there is no point in picking up stitches later to do it, it won't be as nice a finish.

I have used a three needle technique for joining two knitted pieces together, producing a layered effect and I it.
Please, Claire, do tell us what this technique is.
