Good “first sock” pattern and introduction to cables.

The stretchy 2x2 ribbing makes for an easy fit over a wide range of leg sizes. Pattern is written for mid-calf, but if you’d rather knit knee socks, knit to 12-13” (or desired length) before beginning the heel. These socks are great for wearing with boots or around the house.
