The issue is with all yarns but not as bad with pure cotton yarn. No I’m not a speed crocheter as I’m just learning . Yes I do crochet a bit tightly but not enough to cause the issue, I’ve experimented with leaving very little tension on the yarn and still have issue.
If you are just beginning, you admit to crocheting a bit tightly, it is your tension with the yarn. What do you consider 'all yarns'? All yarns from Michael's or all yarns from a good yarn shop? It makes a difference.
