The Rosie Trio: Free Crochet Headband, Fingerless Gloves, & Cowl patterns

The Rosie Headband and Fingerless Gloves

Believe it or not, these three crochet accessories were made from just one roll of Red Heart’s Roll With it Tweeds! Just one! That’s an entire set for what, $8? Make a set for yourself or make a few sets to give away to your favourite friends and loved ones. All three patterns are very easy to make, too, with hardly any seaming! So what are you waiting for?

The Rosie Trio

What you need:


Approximately 4 hdc in third loop = 1 inch; 4 rows of hdc in third loop = 1 inch

Stitches Used: (U.S. Terms):

  • ch – chain
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet


  • You should know how to crochet in the back bump. See this tutorial.
  • You should know hot to crochet in the round.
  • You should know how to slip stitch a seam.
  • You should know how to crochet in the back loop and third loop of hdc.
  • Chain 2 at the beginning of a round counts as 1 hdc.
  • To make a bigger headband, add chains. To make a smaller headband, take away chains. Try on the headband after joining into a round to test the fit.


Chain 75. Slip stitch to first chain, making sure not to twist the chain.

Round 1 – hdc in each back bump around (75), slip stitch to first hdc, and do not turn.

Round 2 – ch 2, hdc in third loop around, sl st to first hdc to join (75).

Round 3-11 – repeat round 2.

Round 12 – ch 1, sc in third loop around, sl st to first sc, but do not fasten off.

ch 31, fasten off and leave a long tail. Fold the top and bottom of the headband inward toward the middle of the headband, then take the chain and wrap it around 3-4 times. Use a wool needle to sew it securely to headband (I went underneath first and last rows on either side). Weave in any loose ends.

Fingerless Gloves

Make 2.

Ch 22.

Row 1 – hdc in third chain from hook and across (20).

Row 2 – ch 1, turn, sc in back loop of first hdc and in each across (20).

Row 3 – ch 2, turn, skip first sc, hdc in next sc and across (20).

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until panel wraps around hand, finishing on a row 2. I had 24 rows or until the rows reached 7 inches. Do not fasten off.

Fold right side over (side with ridges) so that last row meets first row. Ch 1, sl st through both rows for 6 stitches, then sl st 6 only through last row (this will be the thumb hole), then finish by slip stitching through remaining 8 stitches. Do not fasten off. We are moving on to the cuff.

Round 1 – ch 1, turn glove inside out (right side out) and work one sc at the end of each row all around the raw edge of the glove. Sl st to first sc to join round. I ended up with 21. You can add more or less to suit your fit around your wrist.

Round 2 – ch 2, hdc around, sl st to first hdc (ch 2) to join.

Round 3 – ch 2, hdc in third loop around, sl st to first hdc (ch 2) to join.

Round 4-7 – repeat round 3.

Round 8 – ch 1, sc in third loop around, sl st to ch 1 to join. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.


If you worked the set in the order I did, the cowl is made with whatever yarn is left over, so take this into consideration when deciding how many rows you want or can do, or how many chains to start with.

ch 152, sl st to first ch to join, being careful not to twist chain.

Round 1 – ch 2, hdc in each chain around (152).

Round 2 – ch 2, hdc in third loop around (152).

Repeat round 2 as many times as you wish or can.

Last round – ch 1, sc in third loop around. Fasten off and weave in ends.
