You will have one fewer stitch than you cast on because you're actually knitting into the loops between stitches. You can cast on an extra stitch to make up for this near one of the edges.
Thanks for the quick response. I have taken this apart about 10 times and have tried that but it still appears to twist on the one leg of the knit stitch. I did cast on an extra stitch on the second stitch, which would be a purl stitch. It seems like I am off a 1/2 of row. If I am conveying that correctly.

I've never done a provisional cast on before. It should all flow together shouldn't it. It's driving me crazy.
