Can you move a marker just because you messed up?

I'm having a nightmare getting this project started and finally got it going using an Italian tubular method; however, I can never wrap my head around which kind of stitch to CO first for ribbing and I did it wrong. I REALLY don't want to do it again (it would be like the 10th time and it's over 200 sts.) Can I just change the beginning of round by one stitch? I know it's done in socks and to make lace patterns line up, but wasn't sure if I could just because. It's a large cowl in the round. I can't imagine it mattering, but since it's so big, I can't help but wonder if it will cumulatively be bad.

Thanks in advance!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson

I don't see why you can't move your marker one stitch along, or you could (depending on the pattern) adjust the rounds so instead of, say, *k1, p1* rep from * you do *p1, k1* rep from *.
