Great Beginner Sock Patterns

I have come to realize that a couple of you would like to take part in the Sock-Along but have either not knit socks before or would like to have a tutorial of some kind to help you along the way.

To this end I have been searching the Web to find some great beginner resources to help you along the way - this is what I have managed to find....

Beginner sock tutorials:
(According to the image above from top to bottom, and then right to left)

You Tube Videos:

Learn to Knit Socks by Very Pink knits (she has a variety of great sock tutorials)

Other How-To Tutorials:*

These are some really great Craftsy Courses that will get your sock-knitting juices flowing and will help you to greatly improve your skills.

I warmly recommend them all to you.

I thank you kindly in advance for doing so.
