World’s Fastest CrocheterBy Rachel Choi – 15 Comments
|According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Lisa Gentry (shown to the right) holds the title of the world’s fastest crocheter. In 2005, she broke the record at the Michaels Arts and Crafts Store in Monroe, LA. She crocheted at the speed of 170 sts/min, which is almost 3 stitches per second!!!
She used TLC Essentials yarn and created an 8″ mega flower (very similar to my Crochet Flower Pattern: Carnations) while she was being timed.
I don’t know about you but I consider myself a slow crocheter and only in my dreams would I be lucky to crochet 3 stitches per second! What about you? Do you crochet fast?
