Just to clarify: which pattern are you having problem with? Stripes or fabric texture (weave)?

How you're doing it is probably exactly how I'd do it(just very carefully), or else I would make the stocking solid white and paint on the black stripes on a different layer.

Pretty much what Ambi said.

Pay more attention to how stripes' thickness incrimentally decreases (or increases, depending which stripes and from which end you look at). On your example you make lines either thick and frequent or thin and spread widely.
Your options are either to just pay more attention to stripe thickness, or you could try cheating your way around by using a brush with fixed brush size (unbound from pressure) and increase/decrease brush size for each next stripe you draw.

You will have to take your time with it either way.
