I want to start freehanding amigurumi. However, I haven't be able to find a good guide about how to start.

For example: how many stitches should I start off with in my magic ring? How fast should I increase/decrease my stitches?

Anyone have any good resources on this?

I was confident in freehanding amigurumi after making a few from patterns and I got a feel for how many stitches I need to make whatever shapes. So maybe you can do that?

it would depend on the thickness of your yarn and how big you want the initial size to be i would think, you'd just have to play around and do a lot of testing

I think once you have made a few from a pattern, you can learn to make certain shapes and use that knowledge to freehand them

Most patterns start with 6 single crochet in a magic ring. In the 2nd round it can go up to 8 crochet or 12, depending on what’s being made! Then usually the rule is that it goes up by intervals of 6

Most patterns I've seen start with 6sc in a magic ring then always increase next round and usually alternate with increase then sc a row in between
