If you're at the beginning of the decreases, work an extra round and decrease 3 stitches evenly spaced around. This way your decreases will be lined up.

If you've started your decreases and are ending up with 3 extra stitches, you can cheat and decrease an extra stitch (k3tog) at the decrease points to get even again.
