Knitting Pure & Simple has a pattern for Beginner socks that uses worsted weight yarn. It is pattern # 9728. They can be contacted at wwwlknittingpureandsimple.com or (530) 448-9021.
Silver's Sock Tutorial is super also.
i'm making (toddler) socks with a variant of this - www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70480A.html - pattern. I haven't used Silver's tutorial yet but I plan to when I make myself a pair. The Lion Brand pattern does the heel & gusset in a different way then Silver; they insert short rows by wrapping stitches and silver (I believe) slips the first stitch to be later picked up and knit.
