Jonah Larson began crocheting at age five. Today, at age 11, Jonah has a significant social media following from around the world and is using his platform not just to share crocheting tutorials, but also to share his inspiring pattern for life. Jonah has crocheted thousands of projects in his eleven years, but Hello, Crochet Friends! is his first book. Jonah lives with his family in Wisconsin, USA. You can follow Jonah online @jonahhands and view his tutorials on YouTube. You can also join the Hello, Crochet Friends! community on Facebook @hellocrochetfriends.
Jennifer Larson, Jonah's mother, does not crochet. In fact, the only hooks she picks up are the ones Jonah leaves lying around the house! Jennifer, a former hospital administrator, supports her son in many ways, including her role as the co-author of his picture book autobiography Hello, Crochet Friends! Jennifer is also a proud mother to Jonah's brother, Leif, and sister, Mercy, and is happily married to her husband, Chris. When hanging out together, there's a good chance the Larsons will be sitting on the floor because, of course, beloved dogs Bella and Charlie will have taken up all the room on the couch. Jennifer, her family, and their dogs live in Wisconsin, USA.
