Need Knitting Help: Is This A Mistake?

Wow! Two posts in one day! This is so unusual for me. But I need help from some smart knitters. Take a look at this:

Dropped stitch...or loose stitch? You be the judge!
Dropped stitch…or loose stitch? You be the judge!

Did I drop an increase there? Or is that particular yarnover just bigger than the rest? I did try to put the increase in there a few rows back, but it looked funny, so I pulled it back out. Now, I don’t know which is right. Does it look like I missed an increase there, or did I try to put one in that didn’t belong? What is your opinion? What should I do?

Here’s a pic without the arrow:

(In case you don’t know, this is a double increase around a center stitch in a shoulder of a shawl.)

Thanks in advance for your help!

    Can you post the pic without the arrow?

    I’m no expert, but it looks like the strand the arrow is pointing to and the strand just under it are switched. If you follow the corresponding strand in other rows, it comes from the right, goes under, then back up to link in the middle, but that one comes from the right, is on top and then stays down. I wouldn’t have the first clue how to fix it though. I’m glad we have a Stitch Doctor in our knitting group when I have times like that. Good luck!!

    Something looks a bit off but if your stitch count is correct I wouldn’t do anything but go forward.

    I can’t tell from the picture. Do you have the same number of stitches on each side of the center stitch? Sometimes when you fuss with a stitch too much it just gets stretched out. Blocking will fix that.
