A celebration of the beauty and power of crochet - specifically, the life-changing benefits this fibre art has brought to one extraordinary boy, 11-year-old crochet prodigy, Jonah Larson.
PART ONE: Jonah shares his life story, including details about his adoption, behaviour struggles in school, and the role that crochet has played in his life.
PART TWO: Jonah defines crochet, introduces fibre art friends from around the world, and invites readers to “crochet away” with him - exclusive pattern included.
Since "going viral" early this year, Jonah has been credited for lighting the crochet community on fire, and he has grown his social media following substantially.
His Instagram page has nearly 200,000 followers. The continued national and international media attention, including an appearance on the Today Show, a spot in Oprah Magazine, feature stories in major crochet magazines in the US and UK, and interviews by television stations in Australia and Germany, has allowed Jonah to expand his business and "give back" in an even bigger way.
To date, he has raised close to $20,000 through Go Fund Me for an organisation doing charitable work in the region of Ethiopia where he was born.
