That sounds like a backward loop cast on which really isn't a provisional cast on, meant to be pulled out to give you live stitches. Look about two-thirds of the way down this page to see 3 different provisional cast ons that you can use next time.

You can still snip out the cast on you have, it just won't pull out as a single thread.
