The La Maille Hat is a matching crochet slouch hat to the La Maille (the ladder) sweater! Both items have a distressed look to them created by a combination of stitches and chain spaces.

Gray crochet slouch hat, called the La Maille Hat.

Pattern Inspiration

I had already designed the La Maille Sweater when I got the idea for a hat! I wanted the same distressed look and I wanted it to be a crochet slouch hat.

I chose to use a sport weight (#2) yarn for the hat, as well as the sweater, because I wanted it to be a lightweight slouch beanie. Something that could be worn any time of year.

I really like the distressed look the chains give to this hat. It sorta gives it a hipster slouch hat look.
