The important thing is that you must be absolutely sure that your stitches are not twisted around the needles anywhere or you will have to pull out the whole business and start again. So line up your cast-on edge at the bottom of all three edges before you begin that first stitch.

You also must be very careful that you knit the first stitch of each needle tighter than the rest of the stitches on that needle to avoid ladders.

We've had numerous discussions on this topic. You may want to do a search at the knit forum. Since I suppose you are doing a ribbing of some sort it will be less of a problem than if you were working a flat stockinette knit.
