That can happen with any method. I do two things - pick up extra stitches at the "corners" and either knit them together on the next round or just do one or two extra gusset rows. I also knit into the back of the stitches I picked up on that first round. If the stitches look like normal with the front leg to the right then knit into the back, if they look backward already with the back leg to the right then knit the way you normally would. this works for me anyway.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
