This cap is inspired by the Andean Chullo (pronounced tchoo-yo), a traditional garment knit and worn by Andean men, women, and children. Knit in Palette yarn, this hat is knit from the earflaps up, with applied i-cord and tassels to finish. This stranded colorwork hat features a band of alpacas set across a background of color gradients and geometric patterns inspired by motifs found in Andean artwork.

This kit includes nine 50 gram balls of Palette along with the instructions for the Andean Chullo Hat.

For either kit, you will need US 3 (3.25 mm) circular needles, a yarn needle, an extra pair of US 2 (3 mm) needles which can be either circular, DPNs, or straight, and stitch markers.

The finished size will fit an adult medium head, with a 20-21” circumference.
