Can you make home made stockings? And by stockings I mean like for example fish nets not stockings like socks.

I've seen people crochet or knit fishnet/lace stockings. You could sew them if you got some stretch netting material too, of course then they'd have the back seam, which is a neat look if you don't need them to be seamless. It's really just a very stretchy tube if you look at a store bought pair.

The book, Stitch and Bitch Nation by Debbie Stoller has a pattern for 2-needle thigh high fishnet stockings on pages 136-139.  They are worked from the toe up.  You seam them up the back when you're finished knitting.

There is an extremely easy knitting pattern for fishnets in Stitch 'N Bitch Nation.

Here is an example of a completed one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/91384117@N00/1175787128

You can find the book at my library at least, possibly yours too if you live in a decent size city. Alternatively here it is on Ebay for 5 bucks: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=378&item=130404111134

Go than. There are other worlds than these.
