Default For all of the crocheters out there

I am hoping Jfred or another person who crotchets a lot reads this! Lol!

I am still new to crocheting. I am working on a blanket for my mom and it is going well but I want to start on another one and don't want it to be so tightly done. Is using a larger needle the way to make it more 'airy' or is there a specific stitch I need to use? I can do the basic stitches, single crochet, double crochet, etc.... Which would be the best stitch to use!

Thanks in advance for all responses!

Bigger hook gives you a bigger stitch so it won't be as tight. So yea go with a bigger needle. As far as stitch goes, I'm not sure which of the ones you listed would be better. But if you are looking for a more 'airy' stitch, I'd go with the granny square blanket. I'm not a professional crocheter maybe someone else can give you better advice but I hope I helped a little.

Thank you so much! I am wanting to do solid color stripes so unfortunately the granny squares won't work for this one but your input in the larger hook is definitely appreciated!

It is amazing that there are so many different patterns with just yarn and a hook! :o

Using a double stitch will help as well. I use that to make softer blankets.

By now you have most likely done some more crocheting , but you can do an open shell afghan and it will make it more light and airy.

I currently am working on a closed stitch afgan in stripes and I like it as it will be warmer during the winter. our youngest young man is claiming it when done he is 13
