Why is my double crochet loose?
But once you add in a yarn over, or two, or even 3, you start losing some of that control. There’s just literally more yarn in between the loop on your hook and the work you’re doing making the stitch. As you work through the stitch, the loop on your hook can loosen and get overly big.
Is it better to crochet tight or loose?
Well, it comes down to one word: tension. Crochet stitches can’t be too tight or too loose otherwise you will have problems with your project. The yarn should move smoothly from your yarn-holding hand to your crochet hook.
Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
