I'm not sure if this is easier than the method that you're using now but it involves 2 steps, separating the knits and purls and then grafting with Kitchener stitch. The tutorial is for 1x1 rib but the same idea holds for 2x2.

Hello, I've been following this site for a while and have finally taken the plunge and decided to register.

I learnt how to do the 1x1 tubular cast off using Amy's video and I have found a video on Youtube that, although I haven't tried it, appears to be a true 2x2 tubular cast off with no 'fudging' of the stitches.

I'll do a bump on my next post and then, hopefully, I'll be able to post the link.

Yes! I recently learned the 2x2 tubular BO using this video. It's great. I like it much better than the double-knitting method.
