Crocheted provisional cast on
I used this method and ended up with one less provisional stitch than my live stitches. I viewed some videos on this method and they said you might do this but they did not tell how to avoid it. Does anyone have some tips. To me it seems to be the easiest way to do a provisional cast on but I want to end up with the right amount of stitches.

When you make a crochet chain for the provisional cast-on, you can make the chain longer than the number of stitches you need.
