Second Elk Tooth. I made one for a friend that she loves and wears all the time, so I decided to do one for me and change it up a bit.

Some modifications: Instead of doing the center panel, I made more of a crescent shape by putting the increases all on the edges, so my right side stockinette rows went:

K1, (KFB) 2 times, k to 3 stitches before end, (KFB) 2 times, K1

I did stockinette for 56 rows total (28 RS rows), then did all four rows of Elk Tooth pattern 6 times, then 12 rows of seed stitch, then BO according to pattern.

I wound up with a weird lump at the top of the shawl where the cast on was. Maybe I should’ve started with fewer stitches and done a garter tab, but I’m hoping the lump will block out. In any case, it will roll out of sight when I wear the shawl.
