Clogs

My first clogs. Having a very hard time with row 6 at the beginning. I have frogged 3 or 4 times and do not come out with what the pattern says I should. I ended at row 4 with 73 stitches which was correct. I am making medium womens clog and should end with 85 but keep on coming out with 91. What am I doing wrong. Feeling very stupid. If I’m having trouble with 6 rows imagine what’s going to happen later. Gloria

you may not have had the correct number of stitches when you started that row. yOu might need to frog back to the beginning and re-start
