Test knit if my christmas stockings pattern would work for normal sized feet, too, if knit in regular sock yarn (4ply). Yes it does ;) I' shoe size 41/42 and they fit perfectly.

The Star Stockings pattern is here, but written for the large christmas stockings version. Just take 2.5mm/1.5US needles and regular 4ply sock yarn and it fits for women size 41/42 (yes I'm living on large feet). I added some solid colored rounds to elongate the leg and toe part.

To compensate the gauge difference I always use needles one size smaller for solid rounds compared to the two colored rounds. Some people can actually knit at the same tension with stranded knitting, but sadly I'm not yet one of them :)
