Back To School is a shawl knit on a bias, using a contrast color to add a graphic edge. For a little extra credit, there are some short-row triangles to make a garter-stitch chevron (or “Charlie Brown”) stripe!

About 420 yards of the speckled yarn were used, and around 300 of the solid. I recommend using Showcase, which has 490 yards per skein. This way, if your gauge is looser, you don’t have to worry about running out!
