"Crocheting in the back loop of half double crochet stitches mimics the look of the stockinette stitch in knitting. Holding a jumbo yarn with a metallic thread in a different color creates a gentle shimmer on the surface of this hat. Looking for the same style of beanie in a different weight of yarn? Try my free crochet patterns for the Simple Spiral Beanie in medium weight yarn or the Under the Bridge Hat in super bulky weight yarn."

Just don't ever attempt to work a hat in one piece as a spiral without having your stitch markers on hand. I speak from personal experience here. The "Shimmering Frost Beanie" is a much more simple hat than most I have seen, therefore, it will be just right for those who are minimalist in their choice of attire. There are no fancy stitches used here, just the metallic thread to add the pizzaz. Nicely done beanie!

Great idea. I have been crocheting for 50 years and never thought of adding the thread.. It certainly will make it a lot easier to make up some colors. I won't have to search all over for a certain color glittery yarn. And this hat pattern is so easy I will be making more than one.

First of all, I love the sideways look of the stitches, and wow, I never would have thought to carry along crochet thread itself to add an extra dimension to the yarn. Even without the addition of the thread, this is still a very attractive hat. I have several projects that Ive put off because I couldnt find the right sparkly yarn, and this technique might just do the trick. Thanks for finding this!
