Why are there gaps in my single crochet?
As mentioned above, when your tension is not tight enough, you will likely find that you are crocheting a fabric that produces gaps in your amigurumi doll. Tension refers to how tightly you are holding the yarn, how hard you are pulling it from the skein and how tightly you make your finished stitches.
Is it better to crochet tight or loose?
You don’t want your tension to be too loose, yet you don’t want it to be too tight. You want it to be juust right. When you’re crocheting, you want your yarn to glide through your fingers at a consistent rate. You shouldn’t be straining your yarn or letting it hang loose.
