It may be fine. Until you get several inches of ribbing it tends to look big. For garter or a hem I sometimes cast on 72 then increase to 80 after the edging.

Of course if you are knitting with a heavier weight yarn you will need less stitches or if you are an extremely loose knitter, or the head is smaller than average you may may need to adjust, too.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
