Pretty and strong, a basic sock pattern with purposeful design. Use sturdy yarn (meaning a good percentage of nylon or other strong fiber) in the heels and toes and the pretty or more delicate fibers for the main part of the sock. They will wear like iron. Knit from the cuff down with an adjustable foot length, this pattern should be just right for your first sock.
