This includes the knitting, which has been carried out by the men and women of the Quechua and Aymara with an incomprehensible precision until today. The chullo is usually worn like a kind of a sleep hat and the tip hangs down on one side. But there are areas where the knitted cap is worn under other hats. That looks also good.
