I’ve lost my instructions for doing the magic knot to join thread and, I really don’t want to join any Company because of all the adds. Can anyone direct me to the best place . Thank you.

I think you must mean magic knot; magic loop is using a long cable to knit small circumference items.

See if you can change your title.

Joining Yarn With A Knot by Grannymar317 ... that’s my favorite one to follow.
Be aware that they tell you to cut the ends really close to the knot but some have reported that it can come undone when using slippery yarn or fragile yarn. I trust that’s it a good knot but I still weave the tails in, instead of cutting them off.

Sorry couldn’t link it.

There are many other videos to watch ... Very Pink, Fiber Spider each have one, just to name two.

Google "Magic Knot" for joining yarn ends. Keep in mind, however, even when done perfectly..it is possible to come undone. It can also leave a very noticeable knot in your project. Consider Russian Join which IMHO, is usually a better choice.

Magic Loop is a technique for knitting round items, socks, sleeves, sweaters, etc. with a rather long (40" often recommended) circular needle.
