Following the techniques outlined in Ann Budd’s book, Getting Started Knitting Socks, learn the basic formula for knitting socks from cuff to toe using a flexible Norwegian cast-on, standard heel with gusset, and finishing with the Kitchener stitch. You will make a small sock to learn all of the skills in one day, including how to add stitch patterns, and leave ready to knit socks in a variety of sizes and yarn weights. You will also learn how to follow any of the patterns in Getting Started Knitting Socks.
