Many might see crocheting as a hobby for older generations, but 15-year-old Jonah Larson is a self-taught prodigy in the field. He’s been crocheting since he was just 5, with hopes that the meticulous craft will help prepare him to be a surgeon one day. The teen from Wisconsin has gained real traction on social media in recent years, going by “Jonah’s Hands” online.
