We’ve been big fans of Jonah Larson ever since we came across this young crochet prodigy. We got the chance to write a bit about Jonah in our mini-feature back in issue 81, and when we heard that there were talks of a book deal we knew that this young man was set for stardom!
‘Hello Crochet Friends’ is the story of 11 year-old Jonah’s amazing and inspiring life so far, and how crochet has made a huge and positive impact on him! From learning to crochet at the age of 5, to amassing over 190,000 followers on instagram, Jonah is certainly making waves in the crochet community – but it’s not all been plain sailing. In this new book Jonah tells us the story of his adoption as a baby, and, despite being a quick learner and gifted child, how when he moved to America with his adoptive family he struggled with his behaviour and making friends at school – and then came the fateful day when he found a crochet hook in a box and discovered the joy of crochet!
Jonah’s first book is a real heart-warming read, focussing on three main themes – Making Art, Being Mindful and Giving Back. Jonah talks about his past with an honesty and maturity way beyond his years, and explains how the calming effects of crochet and the support he’s received from around the globe has helped him to find his place in this world!
