I don't know about adapting her pattern, but if you know the basic construction of socks you can make them out of weight. Do a swatch and calculate your stitches per inch (over 4 inches and divide by 4) then measure your leg and figure out how many to cast on based on your measurement and stitches per inch.

Here's a pattern for big bulky socks, too.

Here's a sock calulator that would create the pattern for you based on measurement and gauge.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
