This video outlines the key knitting techniques that are required for sock knitting. It focusses on the basic sock construction of a cuff-down sock with a heel flap and gusset. I do refer to other techniques for different methods, but I also explain in-depth why this is my favourite sock construction for getting an excellent fit.
