I started making the V-shape by casting on 1 every row.
All good.
Then I reached 60 stitches and now want to go straight. (Doesn't everybody, mostly ...? [grin])
How many to decrease at which end, please ? - this is only garter stitch, btw.

Just stop increasing?
What is it you're trying to make? A shawl? An afghan? A scarf?

Scarf.
No, if I just stop increasing I won't turn any corners ...

Maybe increase on one edge and decrease on the other ?
Seems too easy ...

Almost. Continue increasing on one edge, while working the other edge with no increases or decreases, until the longer edge is the finished length you desire; then you begin working the decreases on both edges until no more stitches.

Beware! It will not look geometrically rectangular when you finish; it'll be cockeyed. Pull the corners, tug and twist and lay flat. It will become a proper rectangle.

Going fine now. I'm continuing to CO 1 at each edge, but also knitting 3 tbl on one edge, and it works.
Should I post a picture ?
Naah; no-one is that interested. :)

If no one were interested, no one would have even looked at your post. Photo, please?

Oh ! - OK, here you go ...
Not very inspiring, but I believe I've reached a point in my life when I can't knit patterns without making mistakes. That is, unless I do NOTHING else- just knit. No audio book, no music: nothing to distract me from the pattern.
And that's no fun ...
:(
Wish I were able to put those beads in with less effect on their surrounding stitches; but they're, like, big.

Okay, now I see what you are doing. I really like the large beads in it, something different.
