Thanks for the quick response. I have taken this apart about 10 times and have tried that but it still appears to twist on the one leg of the knit stitch. I did cast on an extra stitch on the second stitch, which would be a purl stitch. It seems like I am off a 1/2 of row. If I am conveying that correctly.
I've never done a provisional cast on before. It should all flow together shouldn't it. It's driving me crazy.
