Nope...not a mistake. The CO edge will be all one color. If you CO with both colors held as one, you will cast on HALF the number of required sts because each CO st will have two strands, and you will end up with a "mottled" looking edge, and will have to sort the colors out so they alternate as you knit that first row. Here's a pic of the first DK hat I made for DH oh so long ago...you can see the difference.
