The Andean Chullo uses brightly colored stranded designs to depict patterns and motifs found in the traditional hat worn by Andean men, women and children. Keeping with the customary style of the Chullo hats, the solid colored motifs are set against a shifting-color background. This stranded colorwork hat shows off small geometric patterns, such as little waves, spirals or tilting bricks, which are often found in Andean artwork. These smaller motifs are then set against either a band of alpacas or spiraling ripples. Multiple charts let you pick and choose motifs to place on the earflaps, hat and along the crown. Knit from the earflaps up, the hat is finished off with applied i-cord and tassels. Finished Size: Adult M (about 20-21" head circumference) This is a download pattern only.

Best hat ever. I've made several and oddly enough after I put a pic up of my grey and blue version, lo, the kit emerged. It's so fun to knit and SO WARM. You'll love it.

Googled the history of the Chullo, and nowhere does it say they are only worn by men. Every article only said they are traditionally worn by the indigenous people of the Andes.

Just a picky little FYI note about your description! These chullos are only worn by men and boys; perhaps you could change the wording. (There are some models that girls wear in some FEW places, but not with earflaps, ever.) All best wishes, Cynthia, author of Andean Folk Knitting - new book is coming out in the far future w/ lots of photos!

made this pattern 16 times for grandkids. They love it. For me not difficult but I've been knitting for over 50 years.
