Here's another construction method for socks on flatbed knitting machines.
Use any knitting machine, any yarn.
Foot Up Sock pattern is included (adjustable to your perfect size).
The course presents all the tutorials, tips and tricks you need for success, including a start-to-finish video.
Use short row shaping for the toes and heels, but knit from the foot up, ending with the cuff.
If you can knit short rows, you can knit these socks. (If you haven't tried short row shaping ... here's a great place to learn!)
Basic Sock construction is worked from the cuff down to the toe. Which method is better? It's your call!
