Make sure you are decreasing every time, and not skipping a decrease. I frequently put a stitch marker at the end of each group of stitches, knowing that I decrease one stitch right before the marker. That way I can make sure of where I am decreasing or forgetting to decrease.

On the last row before my first decrease row I place markers, in this casse every 12 stitches, then I only need to knit till 2 stitches before a marker and knit 2 together , around and around until i need to switch from circ to dp for a few rows. saves conting and frogging!
