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!

I learn it just watching youtube videos. You can write magic ring tutorial in the search space and you'll find a lot of different tutorial. I've made one but it is in italian  Undecided I leave anyway the link if you want watch it maybe just watch could help you Smiley https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDWguYiMLIE

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

I did a lot of random mess-ups and video watching before I finally was able to do it right.  It was one of those things that all of a sudden I could do, and I still didn't understand how!

It's one of those things that takes practice to get down pat. The first few times, all I ended up making was a horrific looking knot. There are plenty of youtube tutorials (that's how it finally clicked in my head), but there are also crocheters on Twitch streaming live under the Creative tag. You could hop into the channel's chat and if one is doing, say, amigurumi, they might slow down the process and give you a nice view of how it's done.
