Is there a stitch that takes less yarn?

I am a newer crocheter and I want to make seat cushions for my very uncomfortable dinning room chairs. But I started and realized this project is going to take oh, maybe 50 balls of yarn! That may be an exageration. :) Is there a stitch that will make the yarn go farther? So far I just did single crochet and I only got 5 rows and ran out.

RE: Is there a stitch that takes less yarn?

Crochet is notorious for using lots of yarn. Single crochet is the smallest stitch, not counting the slip stitch. I would think that all other stitches would use more yarn.
