You will have a loop or slipknot on your needle to start any caston and that's considered a stitch too. So if you need to CO 20, you have the beginning loop, then cast on 19 more. When you work the first row, knit or purl into all 20 loops.

Amy starts her long tail with a loop over the needle and that counts as a stitch. At any rate, if you need 8sts on the needle, start with a loop or a slip knot and stop when there are 8sts or strands over the needle. (And as trvvn5 suggests, be careful not to pull up on the first st in the next row. Count your sts to check on whether that first st is one or two if you want to be sure.)
