Crochet piece thickness

Question

Hey friends! 

So excited to see see such a place where I can bring my troubling crochet questions. So I've been crocheting for a while and one thing I've always noticed is that my projects always produce a heavy material. Any tips on how to make lighter finished products? Preferably without having to use a super big hook that leaves lots of gaps or a stitch with lots of holes.

Welcome to the 'ville!

What sort of things do you like to make?  Finding a pattern that uses a finer weight yarn and smaller hook (appropriate to the yarn size) might be one way to go.  

Shorter stitches are denser than taller ones, so if you like to make blankets maybe try a DC based pattern instead of SC or HDC.  Using the same hook and yarn, if you make an x sized swatch in SC, then the same sized one in dc, the DC one will also use a bit less yarn.  Yes, it will be less solid, but unless you are making a pot holder it probably won't matter--a DC blanket is still nice and warm.
