We love knitting socks from the toe up. It lets you use every last inch of yarn! And knitting the heels in afterwards means that they are easy to replace later if they wear out—plus it makes it simple to add a zippy contrast color. Whether you choose fingering or sport weight, ribbed or stockinette, this pattern is filled with tutorials and step by step guides for Kitchener stitch, knitting socks on two circulars and the afterthought heel. New socks and new skills—great!
