If it's a bumpy or fuzzy yarn that hides the details, you could do what ekcheiy says, or even just do an increase above that decrease on the next round.
I'm in the habit of feeling the stitches with my left thumb, one at a time at they approach the tip of the left needle, so I know it's one stitch I'm about to work. I knit the stitch that is above my thumb. This is how I learned to knit without looking. It's a good trick for helping even when you are looking.
Good luck figuring it out!
