How A Brooklyn Man Is Knitting His Way To Fame

Louis Boria the creator, designer and owner behind Brooklyn Boy Knitting is knitting his way to fame. In 2009, he launched Brooklyn Boy Knits to fill the specialized niche. Fourteen months ago a photo of him knitting on the subway went viral. The reason being was in late 2017, American Idol alum Frenchie Davis spotted him knitting on a B train. The Broadway performer, fascinated by his hobby, shared a picture of the stranger with her nearly 30,000 Facebook followers. Since then, his fan base has done anything but shrink and ballooned to more than 16,000 followers on Instagram alone. The knitting industry, as a whole, also took notice and soon Louis Boria began hearing from yarn companies and knitting suppliers from Brooklyn to Europe. He always dreamed of attending his first ‘Vogue Knitting Live’ Convention in Manhattan, and he did for the first time. For Louis, this is all just the beginning.
