I'm not sure what the problem is...are you saying you don't end up with the proper number of stitches? What are you making and can you give a link to the pattern?

When you knit 3 together 6 times, you are decreasing 12 stitches (2 stitches decreased with each K3tog - 2 X 6 = 12) Since you do this twice during the row, you should be decreasing a total of 24 stitches. 56-24=32.

I would be sure that you are doing all 12 K3tog's - it sounds like you are missing one. Also, be sure that you are actually knitting 3 stitches together every time - it is more common to K2tog, so maybe you are doing that on some stitches?

Good luck!

Use a pencil and paper to mark off each decrease you do. It makes life easier.
