Jonah Larson learned to crochet when he was five years old. The boy loves this activity! And look at what he’s already achieved: 140,000 Instagram followers*, over 28,000 YouTube subscribers, a deal to publish a book – and all that, not to mention his knitwear is in high demand.
Iona comes from Ethiopia. He was adopted by a family from the United States. At age 5, Jonah saw crochet tutorials on YouTube – and was hooked!
Turns out he has a knack for knitting. I started with simple things, then moved on to more complex things.
Adoptive mother Jennifer helped Jonah start his knitting business, Jonah’s Hands. They discovered it on the Internet – and orders came in one after another.
Thousands of people wanted to buy Jonas his work. He is not even able to fulfill all orders and many have to be dropped.
The talented boy is called a child prodigy and a knitting genius, many people ask to learn how to knit in the same way.
Jonah is currently working on his own crochet book. It will be called Hello, Crochet Friends! (“Hello crochet friends!”).
The guy is undoubtedly gifted: he even transferred a class higher in school, because he passed the IQ test very well.
In addition, Jonas does good deeds: he does not forget his native Ethiopia, sends things there that he made with his own hands and collects money to help Ethiopian children.
Jon has big plans for the future. He studies hard and hopes to become a surgeon one day.
