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!

Here's a quick comparison of the 2 methods

Foot Up Basic Cuff Down
Kitchener Stitch the toe No Yes
Running short on yarn? Easier to gauge yarn Must establish yarn usage ahead
2 Foot Seams to join Yes No, only 1 seam
Work color or pattern on instep only? Yes Not as easily
