Not a fan of knitting in the round? Not a problem. These simple, beginner level flat knit socks are cleverly constructed to avoid all of the stressful bits of sock knitting. For example, there are mnimal seams and no need for sitch holders. Like the sound of that? There's more!

These socks have only one seam 

Furst'y, you'll probably find that when knitting socks flat, there may be a requirement for stitch holders or extra seams. This is not the case with these easy beginner two needle socks. This is because there are no heel seams, side seams or toe seams. Instead, these socks have one seam running down from the cuff to the toe. 

Tell me more about the construction of these flat knit socks 

I have designed these socks with an integrated square (dutch) heel and the drawstring toe makes sock completion even more achievable. These socks are constructed quickly worked back and forth in one piece. The true test will be in your seaming skills. I decided to put the seam up the front of the sock as is it less likely to irritate.
