The only problem I see is that I lose count a lot, so that first row might make me crazy!

If I do a decreasing shawl, and I decrease every other row (as per the Yarn Harlot), what decrease should I use? She doesn't specify. Which would be best?

thanks!

Usually, ssk/skp at the beginning of a row, k2tog at the end.

Decreasing triangles can be done in several ways; either top down or in some variation of bottom up (where essentialy you are creating a miter)

Which decrease you use depends on what effect you want. I've seen the sufggestion above - and the exact oppisete

That's what I'm going to do. Will try to start it this weekend. Wish me luck!
