Recently I posted about the Guinness World Record for the longest crocheted scarf that was recently achieved. While searching through the website, I realized that there are a bunch of fun crochet records. Some are amazing and some are downright silly! Either way, I’m glad the crochet community is being represented. In this post I rounded up a few of the records. Maybe you will be the next record holder?
