AMANO Rafaela Chullo Hat is knit from the bottom up, mostly in the round. First, both earflaps are worked back and forth; then the final head circumference is cast on between earflaps to work the hat in the round. A pixie style crown shaping and tassels take this classic chullo design to the next level. Knit in AMANO Puna, a DK weight yarn that unites incredible softness and beautiful drape. Alpaca had the widest range of natural colors in the world, and this yarn, which is presented in certified 100% natural mélange shades, represents AMANO’s effort to preserve this unique range of tones.
