Pattern Help!
I was confused with the following pattern, if anyone could look at it and help me understand.

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTdanica.html

When the pattern continues at section 2, does CC1 go on the left edge of the triangle that was just completed? I was worried that when it said "break yarn", it would unravel once I begin section 2.
Hope you can help!

It won't unravel. You're working the edge triangle, using your contrasting color and the stitches that are on the needle from the last triangle.

It won't unravel if you leave about 3" of yarn to weave in later. The stitches might be a little loose, but you can pull the tail a little to tighten them up and they won't come out anyway.

Thank you for the help, but I have another question!
At the end of section 1, everytime I knit the final 10 stitches before breaking the yarn, the 2nd triangle twists and folds in on itself. I wondered if this is normal? I've tried it 4 times already, but it keeps turning out the same.

I can't think of anything that might cause that, though I can't quite visualize it either. Do you have a picture?

I'd keep going. The first row of triangles do look very funky until you work the second tier.

Oh well yes, that's very true. Once you do the next section, they straighten out.

Thank you for the help earlier, it seems this twisting will even itself out the further I go. However, I am reluctant to go beyond the next step, especially with the "pfb" stitch:
Left Edge Triangle:
Row 1 [WS]: Using CC1, pfb, p2tog.

I assume it means purl into the front and back of the stitch, but I can't find any tips or previous help in the forums. Hope you can help!

It is purl front and back. Purl into the stitch as normal, but don't slide it off. Then bring your right tip around back and insert it from left to right in the back loop of the same stitch and purl it again.
