The Agave Fields Shawl was inspired by these gorgeous pictures of people walking through actual agave fields in Mexico at sunset. The decadence of the single-ply alpaca yarn hearkens back to sweet agave nectar while the simplicity of the pattern prepares you for what those fields are really planted for: Tequila.

This pattern is an Advanced Beginner triangle shawl with the option to add tassels. A link to a photo tutorial on how to make tassels is embedded in the PDF of the pattern.
