I think this may work, perhaps for a future project. Do a provisional cast on in a smaller size needle and knit for a couple of rows in stockinette stitch. Change to needle size required for pattern. Work last rows to match first ones in smaller needle, (stockinette for same number of rows). Then do the three needle bind off. If you were working any sort of cable pattern you would definitely want to begin and end in a smaller needle because the cable pattern makes the project smaller width wise.
