Can anyone link me to anything that's going to help me master the magic ring? 😭 I just cannot get it right. It's driving me bananas!

I've watched umpteenth YouTube videos and just cannot get it right 😒😒

Have you seen the 'stitch n bitch' book? Try this: books.google.co.uk/books?id=J8sRUod_VTEC&pg=PA52&lpg=PA52&dq=happy+hooker+magic+ring&source=bl&ots=CUscJ6wplz&sig=WCtBotvJs1_-hpya-sY5_YVAdik&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi8kvfYn5vWAhXBL8AKHbmkDmwQ6AEIdDAW#v=onepage&q=happy%20hooker%20magic%20ring&f=false

I seemed to achieve something using the link below - no idea if I'm doing it right, but it was good enough for what I wanted!

This is the one that finally made the magic ring seem possible for me - Magic Ring

I'd looked at so many others that just didn't seem to work for me, but once you get it, you'll be churning them out

I just do chain 2 and then use the first loop in the chain as a magic ring. I can do them - I just hate doing them.

Thanks ladies! I'm trying my best with it but still struggling 😂

This one from Cherry Heart was the one I got it from in the end.
I find taking it off my fingers once I've got the first chain helps.

YouTube! There's quite a few videos showing you how to do it. I needed to watch someone do (about 10 times) before I got the knack

Oops sorry, you've tried that blush

Bella Coco on YouTube. I did a 3hr learn to crochet workshop at a knitting shop which got me started. I learnt how to hold the hook, count the stitches and that you can remove your hook or rip out stitches without it all going to pot.

Have a look at Girlybunches on YouTube-it all became clear!

It took me ages to learn the magic ring but now I use it all the time. I also use Bella Coco videos and this is her magic circle that I learned from.

I third Bella Coco. She taught me to crochet with her videos.
