I crochet, but I'm still new to it. Why does everything I make curl, and how can I fix it?

A looser hand will come with practice. It can help to use a larger size hook so you're more comfortable holding it and a bulky weight yarn, just to have more to hand on to. Keep telling yourself to loosen your hold; don't be afraid to rip it out and start again. But don't give up either. My first crochet project didn't curl as much as it just felt sort of "hard" because my stitches were so tight. Now, my crocheting feels much softer. :-)

Your stitches are too tight. Lighten up a bit.
