    When you say “followed the instructions”: Did you measure your ingredients by weight or volume? Is your yeast fresh and active? And beyond these two points (aka “the usual suspects”), could you share the recipe and the instructions with us, please? How’s the taste? Can you describe the texture of crust and crumb? Can we perhaps get a photo that’s better focused, so that we can see the interior and the crust better? Just edit your post as needed. In the meantime, I would also recommend you take the tour and browse through the help center, especially How to Ask, to learn more about how the site works.
