I'm about to start knitting the Danica scarf from Knitty but even though I've been practicing entrelac a little bit I still need some help. Does anyone have any tips, videos, or tutorials? I'm having issues with doing the right side triangle and the section directly after that.

What's the specific problem? Not sure where to pick up sts or about the increases? The increases go at the edge of the scarf, and you also k2tog or p2tog (depends what side your on and I forget) at the ends of those rows you started with an inc.

Well I get to the right triangle and the part right after it and I'm stuck. I'm not quite sure how to work that.

The Right edge Triangle? It reads:
     "Pick up and p 9 sts along edge of square adjacent to right needle."

So first, you're going to pick up the sts that are just below the needle. BTW, you're not supposed to turn your work when you finish the square just before it. Then you can see the sts you pick up. You'll have the purl side facing you and you pick up 9 sts purlwise by inserting the needle from the back to the front. Wrap the yarn around the needle as if you were purling, and draw it back. Repeat.
   "Row 1 [RS]: K9."

When you have 9 sts picked up, turn and knit them, then do the rest of the rows:
    "Row 2 [WS]: P7, p2tog.
Row 3 [RS]: K8.
Row 4 [WS]: P6, p2tog.
Row 5 [RS]: K7.
Row 6 [WS]: P5, p2tog.
Row 7 [RS]: K6.
Row 8 [WS]: P4, p2tog.
Row 9 [RS]: K5.
Row 10 [WS]: P3, p2tog.
Row 11 [RS]: K4.
Row 12 [WS]: P2, p2tog.
Row 13 [RS]: K3.
Row 14 [WS]: P1, p2tog.
Row 15 [RS]: K2.
Row 16 [WS]: P2tog. Break yarn.."

At the end, cut your yarn if you're doing 2 colors. If just using a single color, don't cut it and go on to the next section.
