I have a trick I use. When the pattern says to cast on a certain number of sts, I add 1 to them. I place my marker, then I join my round, I slip the extra st from the right needle, to the left, pulling on both the tail and the working yarn to make it tight, I knit the slipped st and first tog. It also helps with the jog when changing colors!
