Couple weeks ago in my post I was thinking about types of triangular shawl constructions. I named three.
Thanks to my readers, now I know about three more :
1. Short row shaping ( thank you Lina!): the knitting starts with the lacy border, and the triangular shape is developed by knitting short rows:
The excellent example of this is "Lazy Katy" by Birgit Freyer (Knitting delight)
The shawl is knitted sideways: increasing on one side up to the middle point and then decreasing:

3. Sideways triangle started from the middle:knitting starts with a provisional cast-on.
Shawl knitted from the widest point of triangle decreasing on one side in one direction, then stitches are picked up from the provisional cast-on at the widest point of triangle and the other side of the shawl is knitted as a mirror image.
Unfortunately, I did not find an picture of an actual shawl or shawl pattern knitted that way.
Do you know of any?
