What's the point? Resizing a chain takes so little effort that I don't understand the reluctance.
I use the big/big method. Wrap your chain around the big chainring and biggest cog bypassing the rear derailleur. Figure out the shortest place you could rejoin the chain. Add 1" of chain (2 links) onto that. That's the shortest chain you can safely run with that combination.
