If you are looking for some fun-filled, easy crochet projects look no further than these crochet patterns from crochet prodigy Jonah Larson!  Jonah taught himself to crochet when he was just 5 years old!  He gained attention from several news outlets and online sources for his talents and creative projects that he makes.

You'll enjoy the crochet patterns in this book. They are easy to make and are one of the best resources for going back to time and time again to find the perfect gift idea!
Jonah was born in Ethiopia and adopted as a baby, and he admits he did not always make it easy for his parents. Luckily for him and them, he found that crochet had a way of calming him down. He credits his parents with teaching him many things, especially the importance of giving back and helping others. This book grew out of Jonah’s philosophy that part of living a happy life is giving to those in need. With this in mind you will find designs like hats, scarves, slippers and afghans that are easy and simple, and they make perfect gifts to give to those who find themselves in need, those who are suffering with terminal illness or someone who just needs to know that someone cares. Also included is a basic Learn to Crochet section.
