If you google Rodarte Stockings, you actually can find some people who have made them-- and then don't tell how they did it!:tap: Several refernces on Ravelry as well. But they talk about lots of yarn overs and knit-2-togethers and using huge needles with fine sock yarn. . .
Here's what you could do-- find a free pattern for fishnets or lace stockings on www.knittingpatterncentral.com or www.knitty.com, and then using their proportions so you get a good fit, do the above mentioned yarn overs, big needles, etc., and go from there.
By the way-- some Ravelers think they were crocheted instead of knit.:shrug:

Naw, I think they were knit from the top to the toe. You can tell on some of the lines of sts that it looks like an upside down knit.
