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!

Hi. Everyone says this site is the best sock tutorial and she gives you several options for making them.

Thank you so much! That is just the kind of thing I was looking for, step by step...I think I will try when my scarf is finished Smiley

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!
