The Quechua word for hat is ch’ullo. Hats are an important part of the Quechua men's traditions. The men knit all of their own ch’ullos. It is tradition that fathers knit their sons' first ch’ullo which can take up to a month to make. If not a good knitter, the father must trade for something with another man who is to obtain a well-made ch’ullo.
