Hey, so I am just getting into knitting, I have been crocheting for years...I'd like to learn to knit socks, and I am looking for a good tutorial that really dumbs it down for a new knitter. Preferably continental style, since that is apparently how I knit. All I know how to do right now is cast on and knit stitch. So links to videos that illustrate the techniques I will need and maybe a (very) basic pattern. Seems like all the ones I have found assume one already knows how to knit socks :/

Thanks craftsters!

I knit my first sock ever using Knittinghelp.com's Working the heel of a sock video. She uses a free baby sock pattern (North Country Cotton Baby Socks). I suggest you start with baby socks since they are so small, they knit up fast, and they use the same techniques as adult socks.

When I graduated to adult socks, I bought Paton's Next Steps Booklet which has sock and slippers patterns for every type of yarn (fine to chunky) and very detailed instructions. The only thing is there are a lot of corrections to look out for. I just finished two pairs of the Basic Fine Sock and I found them very easy to knit (except for the places where there are errors, but I just noticed today that they issued corrections on the website, dumb me! I never thought to check!!)

That's a great idea to start with baby socks, makes sense to start tiny and work up to socks for me and hubby!
