The chullo not is original from Chile, is original from Peru and part of Bolivia. This version is mistake.

The spanish version is

El chullo (aimara: ch'ullu ) es un gorro con orejeras tejido en lana de alpaca u otros animales y en combinación con fibras sintéticas. Es originario de las regiones andinas, donde se le usa para protegerse del inclemente frío de la puna. Suele acompañarse de dibujos multicolores. En cada región sobre todo en las alturas de los Andes del Perú y occidente de Bolivia existen no sólo en variedad de colores sino también en su uso que va desde el cotidiano como la identificación de quién ocupa un cargo público o quién es soltero por citar algunos ejemplos. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.230.70.89 (talk) 04:37, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

……………In the Andes mountains of Bolivia and Peru, knitted hats of chullo are made from vicuña, alpaca o llama, or sheeps wool. Both men and women wear these hats with intricately patterned bands depicting animals and birds in dyed and naturally colored yarns. Men also knit hats and belts that record their marital and social status Knitting in Mexico and Guatemala ranges from fine altar cloths to tough, hard-wearing carrying bags. Important knitting traditions also include finely knit aloe fiber stockings and shawls from Paraguay and the Azores.

Hand knitting has experienced a resurgence in recent years with the advent of interesting new fibers and yarns, especially among young adults. The Knitting Guild of America offers conventions, conferences, design contests, and a monthly magazine. Events such a Knit-ins” bring people from all walks of life to a central place to share their craft and raise funds for charity. In developing contries, knitting is an important technique used to create goods for export, similar to Bosnian crochet. For example, refugees from Afghanistan knit their own designs using wool unraveled from garments given to them by ald organizations. In India, discarded saris are shredded, and the silk is spun into knitting yarn.
