Beginner Sock Pattern?
I have never knit up sock before and am looking to give it a whirl. Does anyone know of a fairly easy beginner sock pattern? Thanks in advance

I swear by Silver's sock tutorials! She has taught countless people to knit socks. I have never seen a better site for learning to make socks.

I made my first sock using Silver's sock tutorial and it's great! Just go by it and you won't have any problems.

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.
