Newbie needs help with crochet 'curling'

I'm learning how to crochet and think I'm getting the stitches down, but each piece I"ve practiced on ends up all curled up, like a ruffle! What am I doing wrong?

I am thinking your tension is too tight. What size needle are you using and what kind of yarn.
I know when my tension is tight mine also curl up.

Happy crocheting!
