11-year-old volunteer crochets his first hat for Team Yarn

A long car ride prompted 11-year-old Jordy of Spring Lake Park to learn how to crochet.

He's been attending Team Yarn meetings with Grandma Linda Moore of Fridley since we began in 2013. When he took a roadtrip to Iowa, he wanted something to do in the car. His grandma started the hat for him, and handed it over when the expansion rows were done and he could concentrate on putting one stitch in each one that was already there. He started off doing single crochet rows, but when he decided he wasn't moving fast enough, he switched to double crochet. "It's fun," stated the 11-year-old boy, "especially when you're in the car and have nothing to do."

He donated his first hat, a green hat with a brim, to Team Yarn in November 2016.

"It's good to help the community and be nice to other people and do good deeds," Jordy explained. He plans to keep crocheting and donating the hats to Team Yarn. We can't wait to see what you create next! It's wonderful to have you on the Team, Jordy!!
