[Crochet] Small Magic circle

I have difficulty making magic circle with few stitches like 4 sc in the magic circle and 4 sc in the following rounds.  Any advice to make it easier?

Just keep at it I found that I kept having problems not being able to pull it tight  so I kept watching youtube videos on it
One problem was not having the tail end wrapped around your finger.  Or I was catching the yarn with the last crochet stitch in the circle that prevented me from pulling it closed.
Once you get it  you will find it easier to do ever time now it is like second nature.  As far as working with 4 on 4 stitches  try and get your work to the right side as soon as possible this will help  yes it will be tight.
I usually pinch the tube closed to work that few of stitches, just be careful not to pick up the stitch behind it.

Very annoying crocheting 4sc or less in the magic circle, firstly I found crocheting a little bit loose helps, secondly once the circle has been closed I take my needle and insert it into the first sc, I manipulate the stitch a little to make it a little bigger and easier to get my hook into and lastly i noticed a difference when I switched to different hooks with a smaller tip, that’s really helpful. Finally just a lot of patience lol if I ever come across a pattern which says 2sc in a magic circle I’m done lol

creo que a la hora de envolver el hilo entre sus dedos, lo puede hacer en lugar de dos dedos, con uno y asegurar que den las vueltas correctas, espero le sea de ayuda.

I can't seem to get the hang of doing the magic circle at all. I will keep on trying but I usually wind up doing it the old fashioned way!!! Maybe someday!! lol

I normally make the first stitch a bit loose so that I can insert my hook easier on the next round, and I wrap the yarn twice not once so it's tighter

Keep your circle quite large until you have completed the last stitch, then pull it closed & slip stitch to join. That way you can almost crochet in a row which I find a bit easier :)

I make sure to use markers so you know which one is the first stitch, which will make it easier to know where to start the next round.

I tend to do a ch2 for little loops, easier than a migic circle that leaves a hole...

it really isn't easy. when i have to sc 4 in the round, i usually try to go pull the yarn through via the side.. it's hard to explain..

i hate small rounds.. really can't help it tho
