i've never done one of these before but how about...
...Nd8 cxd8=Q+..Kxd8 b7 oh whoops that attacks c8 square so ..Kc8 b8=Q# is no good. not to mention it's not even mate lol
but is that the correct number of moves for a helpmate? would that be a successful helpmate in 3 were black to be checkmated at the end?

Originally posted by serigadoOnce you have the correct idea for limiting King squares, the problem is much easier. Quite annoying though until you find it!
No way... there' no solution...
Initially, there are only 5 moves... 4 with knight, one with king.
Neither gives mate in 3 by white.
