Ombre Crochet Neck Warmer Pattern

Greetings, craft enthusiasts! Are you on the hunt for an easy yet beautiful crochet project? Well, you’re in for a treat.


This crochet cowl pattern is not just simple to craft, but the outcome is nothing short of stunning. If you’re new to crocheting or just have limited time, this easy cowl design is the perfect pick for you.

Crafted with simple stitches and a bulky five-weight yarn, this project works up quickly and effortlessly.

The Yarn for Your Ombre Cowl

For this design, we’re aiming to create a warm, cozy cowl, so we’ll be using Homespun from Lion Brand.

This 98% acrylic yarn is a delight to work with and provides a beautiful finish. The twisted fibers might require some getting used to, but the resulting patterns are worth the extra effort.

To achieve the desired ombre look, I used Homespun Stripes New Look in the colorway First Blush. The color transition from light to darker pink is flawless, creating a stunning ombre effect. However, you could also use a skein of the original Homespun yarn to achieve a similar result.


As this yarn changes colors itself, there are fewer ends to weave in, always a bonus when crocheting! If you have the original Homespun yarn on hand, it would work perfectly with this neck warmer design.

The Stitches for Your Ombre Cowl

This design requires knowledge of basic crochet stitches. If you’re familiar with single crochet and double crochet, you’ll be able to create this neck warmer with ease. In my opinion, this is a beginner-friendly design that any level of crocheter can enjoy.
