Tubular cast off

I’m doing a tubular cast off on a top down cardigan ending in 1x1 rib. I have done kitchener stitch previously but not this cast off. I have found lots of different instructions, leaving me with two questions. 1. Would it be better to have an odd or even number of foundation rows and 2. Should I do complete the graft from the right or wrong side of the work?

I love the look of this bind off and use it as often as I can. I do it this way, which is often called a sewn bind off.

I work it from the right side but both sides look quite good.
