Why is my crochet so loose?

In a single crochet stitch, the loop you draw up through your work directly controls the size of the loop on your hook. … There’s just literally more yarn in between the loop on your hook and the work you’re doing making the stitch.

How do you measure tension in crochet?

Use a pin as a marker and insert it vertically between two stitches. Then, using a rigid ruler, horizontally measure 10cm (4in) and place another pin in the fabric. Count the number of stitches between the two pins and if your tension corresponds with that given in the pattern, then you can start crocheting.

Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
