Razor Shell

A traditional Shetland pattern, Razor Shell is one of many with yarn overs stacked in tandem columns. Variations have more or fewer plain stitches between the yarn overs and their matching decreases, or use centered sl2-k1-p2sso decreases rather than left-leaning sl1-k2tog-psso decreases.

Shown with a cast-on count of 21 stitches.
