How fast is Tunisian crochet?

And this is my Tunisian crochet swatch.

With the exact same stitch count as the regular crochet swatch, that means each stitch took me on average 3.8 seconds to make. It used a total of 7 grams of yarn, and it measures 11 cm across x 11 cm tall. A perfect square, well done, Tunisian!

What does inch mean in crochet?

Gauge means the number of stitches per inch and rows per inch that result from a specified yarn worked with a specified-size hook. Since everyone crochets differently—some loosely, some tightly, some in-between—the measurements of individual work can vary greatly when using the same-size hook and yarn.
