I have a scarf pattern that used that technique & it does make a nice edge. It isn't quite as round as an icord, but it is a very clean edge.

I do this on almost all afghans or baby blankets, or scarves.... on baby blankets I usually only do two stitches, on scarves I will do one or two stitches.... which is flatter.
Additionally:
I do not like how i-cord cast-on looks, so I do an easy provisional long-tail cast-on and then go back and "bind-off" the "cast-on" edge with an i-cord bind-off, when I have finished the bind-off edge
Seems to me it makes a nice, finished edge and makes the edge a little sturdier; often edges are the first areas that show wear.

That is the same idea as the 1889 sea men's hat
Yes, I had to go back and read the instructions - I didn't catch on to that before. Thanks for making me look again and I wish I would have seen this when knitting my baby blanket.
