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!
“My daughter will treasure the handmade crisscross baby blanket forever! It is so soft and she carries it with her wherever she goes!”
“Your story is very inspirational. I bought your book for my son who has now taken up crocheting. He loves it and it relaxes him too.
“I can’t say enough about your Hand Salve. I have bought much more expensive versions of this all natural salve and yours is the best by far! This stuff really works wonders!”
I couldn't help myself! I bought all 10 of your kits and gave them to kids in my life. I think crafting is so important to our mental well-being. P.S. The Koala is my daughter's favorite!
I love wearing your tees and helping you spread the love of crochet!
I love my new Jonah Jacket. I got the ivory color and the patches really look nice on it. So many people compliment me when I wear it and I tell them all about you (if they don’t already know!).
I gave everyone in our crochet club one of your pins and they really liked them. It made a nice Christmas gift for them. Thank you.
All of your tutorials are great but I really liked the pink shawl you made. I followed along and made a light green one- you are a great instructor young man!
I bought some of your salve to help with my hands after gardening. I don’t use garden gloves when I garden so they get kind of rough looking.
I love using it on my feet and heels!!!! Elbows too. It is a great softening formula and helps to heal my feet/heels after long distance running.

Jonah Larson is a Season 8 Knit Star
I'm excited to share with you that I'm a Knit Star (Crochet Star in my case) for Season 8 Masterclass. I'll be walking you through, step-by-step, how to make this luxurious, slouchy beanie with pom pom. I've teamed up with Hedgehog Fibers from Ireland who hand dyed yarn just for this project (but feel free to use any yarn you like). When you sign up for Season 8, you get the classes for 9 other Knit Star Fiber Artists too! They are online so you can watch whenever you like and as many times as you'd like.

Also (and this is extra special for me) a portion of each class sold will go to my charity in Ethiopia to help kids further their education. Consider registering for Knit Stars- it will keep you busy this fall/winter season and you’ll create beautiful things!

Caron Crochet Shawl
This shawl was meant to be made using Caron Cakes, hence the name, but I used Red Heart Roll With It Sparkle. I loved how it turned out. The geometrical design of this shawl makes it unique and interesting. Definitely a show stopper! Click on the orange button to watch the video to get more tips on how to crochet it!
Crochet Granny Square Tank
I made this crochet tank for my sister. She really received a lot of compliments on it! I used a yarn made with a cotton/acrylic blend. The granny squares are easy to crochet and there are so many colors to choose to fit your style.

Bernat Trellis Basket
Use any jumbo yarn to make this beautiful trellis basket. I used Bernat Plush Big. Have fun mixing up colors or making it monochromatic. It’s big, it’s fun, and it’s unique.

Have you ever crocheted socks? Now is the time! These are considered intermediate in difficulty so best to have a little crochet experience when starting this project.
