Introduction

This is my take on a Chullo Hat. It has a sleek combination of bright, almost crayon colors and black to give it punch, as well as very geometric earflaps. it will be fun for daily wear, especially in dreary winter days!

Materials:
Red Heart worsted weight Turqua

Red Heart worsted weight Carrot
Red heart worsted weight Spring Green

Notes

Weave in tails as you go so that all the color changes will be neatly done with by the time you finish the hat.

Optional Tassels (make 2)- Cut a piece or cardboard 2" long and wrap around it a couple of strands of every color used to make the hat. Slip the bundle off the cardboard and tie in the mmiddle, making a soft tassel. Measure it and cut it so that it will be 1 1/2" long with all the ends matching in length. Repeat with the other one. With Black yarn, sew them to the end of each tie.
Variation- If you don't want to make tassels, buy two large wooden beads and insert one at the end of each tie and make a knot.

This is an adorable hat!!
I do however have one suggestion. The way the pattern in posted is really confusing. A little organization and spacing might help!

I have to agree about the way the pattern is printed.  How about using a hard return after each Row.  Maybe even skip a line between rows to make it easier to read.  To really make it easy, pdf files are great to just download straight to our computer instead of having to copy and paste into another file.    What is the old saying -- Beggars can't be choosers!  Here we go trying to be choosers.  :)  Thanks for the pattern.  I went ahead and copied mine into MS Word, then added my own spacing.  Not that hard.

Thank you for the suggestions. I wrote the pattern as i sually do for my blog, and had not had any complaints from my readers, but to accommodate any of you who might want to make the hat, I have spaced out and bolded out the rounds for clearness. The hat would also be gorgeous in cream, gray, brick, brown, rust and medium blue. Just in case you would like more muted hues...

Take care!
