Well, this pattern would be the basic way to knit on the diagonal/bias.

For a towel once you get the width you want (8") you would stop the increases, and just work each row even till you get the length you want (14").
To make one end triangular, you would need to change the decreasing pattern a bit, working one side, but not the other, until the other side's length is also 14", then start decreasing on that side too till you get to the point. Then make a loop for hanging.
