The test knitter for one of my patterns didn't catch any errors - but her photo din't look quite what I envisioned. I didn't want to SAY that to her, so I cast on for it myself, and it's coming out just the way I thought it should.

The basic triangle is worked from the tip up to the neckline. Increasing two stitches every other row. See the top half of the diagram. I've marked an arrow for the direction of growth and labeled the sides.
