Mmario (or any body) please help

Can you provide me with the stitches needed to start a shawl from the big end to the little end? If you could I would appreciate it. Also, do you know of any fairly easily patterns made this way? Thanks.

Hi Bryan
If I am understanding you correctly you are looking for a triangular shaped shawl? Here is a link to one that is very easy - http://ramblingdesigns.blogspot.com/2008/04/have-look.html
This was one of my first lace patterns, and I will be teaching a class with this pattern this winter. I have encouraged a friend of mine who will be a first time lace knitter to do this pattern. He has ordered the yarn for it and I will be web-cam teaching him until he gets the hang of the pattern.
If you have any questions, you can message me here or email me.
Take care
Ed

I think he's looking for a top down triangle; what I tend to call the "double triangle" I'm e-mailed him.

MMario, that is exactly what he was looking for. I corresponded with him via email and found a pattern for him.

You will find that the cast majority of the scarf patterns start with a caston of 3-6 stitches, and increase up to the final number, thus creating a triangle. Doing it in the opposite direction creates a more difficult pattern, due to the fact that all lace patterns are essentially increases, and you would need to be doing many more decreases than increases to make the pattern work out.

except there is a nice simple way of doing two triangles side by side which gives you a top down triangle, and it likewise starts from a few stitches and works to many.
