I like to crochet my amigurumi through the backloops for a tight and ridged appearance.

Someone said it looked as if I crocheted through both loops and accidentally turned it inside out  thus- making it look like I did backloop stitches.

I've never heard of this before and I don't remember seeing it in my previous work.
Wondering if someone else had or if it's true.   

Yup, I'm probably going to end up doing teeny swatches but it would be nice to know if it was a well known thing or something. Maybe save the trouble trying to squeeze the hook through one loop?

Crocheting through both loops and turning it inside out does certainly give a different look than keeping it right-side out, but I have never seen it give a ridged appearance like the one you get from crocheting through back loops only.

I thought so. Thanks!

I did some swatches  if someone would like a visual!
