A Basic Toe-Up Sock Knitting Pattern

Here's an easy beginner knitting pattern for a basic pair of toe-up socks.  I've included Tutorials to learn Judy's Magic Cast On, developed by Judy Becker and The Sweet Tomato Heel, developed by Cat Bordhi.  I use both of these techniques frequently in more complex patterns for #SockClub.   Find your favorite yarn and give it a try! - Christina
