Magic ring completely stumped me for a long time. Here's the guide that finally helped me "get" it:

Honestly, I think most of the instructions for magic ring get way too complicated in their description of how you hold everything. What you basically just need to do is create a loop of yarn that you first pull one stitch through, and then just create however many single crochets you need. Then just pull it tight.

I found lots of help just browsing YouTube videos! It's really not too hard. It can just be a little confusing at first. I haven't gone back to just chaining since I discovered it. I love magic loop!

The 2 chain method is definitely a good way to go when you are just starting
