This pattern is available for free.

This pattern includes a version for knitting the socks, as well as a version with notes for someone using the pattern to teach a sock knitting class using the magic loop technique. The socks are good for teaching because the leg is quite short, so you can get through at least the heel in one class. You are very welcome to use this pattern to teach sock knitting.

These end up being “house socks,” and are a bit loose to wear in any circumstances where they’ll get hard use. But they are quick to knit!
