Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. They work together to improve schools, educate children, enable livelihoods, and include everyone. Donating to Roots Ethiopia is just one of the ways I like to “give back”. They help families in the region where I was born and that’s very special to me. Also, if you’d like to help me and my family return to Ethiopia to see the library/science lab I built and to meet the children in my birth village who use those new facilities please consider donating to my GoFundMe. Thank you crochet friends!Learn More

My Ethiopian Afghan
Red, yellow, and green- the colors of the Ethiopian Flag. I’m so proud of this blanket because it represents my birth country. I was only in Ethiopia for a few short months before my mom and dad brought me to America, but I will never forget where I came from. I’m also so blessed and proud to be an American.
The yarn I used for this blanket is one of my favorites- Caron Simply Soft.

Caron Crochet Shawl
You'll want to crochet this beautiful shawl using Caron Simply Soft. I used the color Chili Flakes but there are many colors to choose from. This shawl uses several stitches including a picot edge which gives it the beautiful detail and texture. You can customize the size to meet your needs. I have a video tutorial available below. You may need to slow down the video because I was crocheting fairly quickly!
