Using a crochet hook as your rh needle means that you don't have to use lh needle to pick up each stitch and drop it off, I think this makes for a more even edge as the other way can create distortion, but I am a tight knitter. I've heard of another cast off where you pull each stitch through the next starting on the end opposite to the tail, but I imagine this one is quite tight or at least not stretchy. Good though if you don't have enough wool left to do a standard cast off row.
