It all depends on how the parents' IVs are set up:

Male - x/31/31/31/31/31
Female - 31/x/31/31/31/31
Baby - x/x/r/31/31/31

The Destiny Knot only guarantees passing 5 of the parents IVs down, not that all of them are perfect. The baby's sixth IV is always randomised, so you could end up with a 3 IV baby from two 5 IV parents.
My great weakness is the love I have for the fair sex, and pretty much all my trouble comes from or can be traced to that charming source.

The two parents got different IV spread, am I right?
x/31/31/31/31/31 and 31/x/31/31/31/31 for example.
In this case it takes the HP from the first parent, attack from the second parent and the three remaining will be perfect. The last one will, as always, be random.

The Destiny Knot could be grabbing one non-31 from one parent, one non-31 from the other parent and then giving you the random non-31. Just keep hatching

There you go...the DK is grabbing one parent's Speed IV, the other's Special Defense IV, 3 random perfects, and the baby is getting a non-31 as its random IV.

I'm not completely sure I read that correctly, but if I did, then that makes sense. Destiny knot chose the imperfect Speed (1), the imperfect Special Defense (2), then 3 of those you listed, which would be perfect (5), then its last stat is random.

what i am saying is out the 3IV the SP DEF and SPD stat is never one of the 3 IVs its always HP, ATK, DEF or HP, DEF, SP ATK
