Not a fan of knitting in the round? Not a problem. These flat knit socks are cleverly constructed to avoid all of the stressful parts of sock knitting.
For example, they are constructed cuff down in one piece. There is no requirement for stitch holders. These socks also have an integrated square (Dutch heel) which is constructed using some short row shaping. You do not have to pick the stitches up later.
Why is it a simple beginner friendly sock pattern?
This simple beginer two needle sock pattern enables you to try sock knitting using a method that is more convenient for you whilst learning new techniques.
There are no heel seams, side seams or toe seams. Instead, these socks have one seam running down from the cuff to the toe. How clever is that?
