I appreciate everyone helping me out with this. I must have crocheted the swatch correctly, because I chained 10 + 1 for the turning chain. That was exactly what was confusing me. My problem was that, for a 10 st swatch, beginning with a sc row, I really should have chained 10.

You have all been very kind to take the time to respond! I think I've got it
