i looked around and couldn't find anything, but maybe if you just do a knotted mesh stitch you'd get the effect?

to do that, you knit 1, make one out of the bar between the stitches, knit 1, and slip the made stitch over.  repeat for the entire row, turn, purl the whole row.  repeat those two rows.

I bet if did it with thin enough yarn and the right size of needles (no idea what that would be) it would look nifty.

Honestly I don't know how to make socks or anything yet but I made a scarf that came out looking like I had a fishnet stocking around my neck Smiley I just knit in the stockingette stitch on size 17 or 19 needles ( I forget).

I've also used 20mm needles to knit a shawl before.  I guess that can pass off as a fishnet too?

There's a fishnet like stocking pattern in SnB Nation..

Though that is a pattern you'd have to purchase... Can you get that book at the library? Huh

If you want to make actual stockings, there is a pattern on the Knitty website:

If you just want to know how to make general fishnet, scroll down on that page and there are directions for 2 kinds of fishnet at the beginning of the pattern
