But as you can see in these crocheted row swatches, working in one loop only will make the stitches taller than working in both loops. (Stitches look a bit different when working in the round but the size difference is still about the same!)

If you want to crochet a both loops pattern in one loop only, you might want to do less rounds/rows to get the same proportions/size as specified in the pattern. But look over the pattern first because some designs use sc blo for certain features.
Check out the Mini Pig Amigurumi made in both loops only:
And haleybun's made in the back loops only:
Do you prefer crocheting in back loops only or both loops (or even the front loops only?!) I've always liked how both loops looked on amigurumi but I've been trying to do more back loops only projects... mostly because I can finish them a little faster since the rounds are taller ;)
