stiff crocheted piece?
I am very new to crochet (I did try very briefly before, but dropped it so now its like I'm back at square one), and am just making a simple "single stitch" crocheted scarf for starters.

Its going well and looks very good, but I have one small problem. The piece is rather stiff. Maybe I am using too small of a needle and thus making the piece too "compact" so that it is stiff?

I notice if I gently crumple the piece, it stays sorta crumpled because of the stiffness of it, and it doesn't "relax" like a normal piece would.

Would washing help, or is the only answer to use a larger needle for a less densely crocheted piece?
