Lionbrand actually has a chunky sock pattern on their website, using their thick and quick WoolEase. You have to make an account and log in to access their patterns, but it’s here:
With the pattern, you shouldn’t have trouble keeping the count correct, once you understand basic sock construction, and you don’t cast on a lot of stitches, so it might actually be a good one to start with. One thing I can tell you from my experience is–get bamboo needles for your socks! I got so frustrated when I was starting to learn to knit with DPNs and my yarn kept sliding off the metal needles. Bamboo has a bit of friction so your yarn stays put.
Also, I got two sets of needles and did one portion of each sock at a time: Ribbing the cuff on one, ribbing he cuff on the other, knitting down to the heel on one, knitting down to the heel on the other, etc…this makes it easier to compare them as you’re going and prevents mistakes.
One warning I can give, though, is that I made my mom a pair of socks with worsted weight Wool-ease and they wore out really quickly, but then she wore them a lot without shoes. I couldn’t darn them because the heel of the sock that wore through had felted up so much. So you might want to think about making a slipper-sock and attaching those leather sole thingies to the bottom, or maybe getting something a bit more durable.
Good luck! If I can learn to knit a sock, you certainly can!
