Knitting socks on a flatbed knitting machine doesn't have to be intimidating.
If you can knit short rows, you can knit these basic socks. (If you haven't tried short row shaping ... here's a great place to learn!)

Use any knitting machine, any yarn.
Once you master this basic sock construction, you'll be ready to get creative!
