I haven't seen one, but you could just take a regular pattern, knit it at a tighter gauge to get the tight fabric (need some math to calculate the change is sts) and make the ribbing at the waist longer as well as at the legs.

I know some of the Norwegian/Finnish knitting patterns have some that look similar but they are knit in 4ply/fingering and are in Norwegian and Finnish.
Those soakers (Disana ones) are also not handknit, they are machine knit. Also the curly purly waistband looks similar, you would just need to modify the legbands, just do longer ribbed bands.

I agree with PP, curly purly would be similar

Did your pattern work? I have been looking for a disana-like pattern, but I don't think I personally have the skills yet to modify a pattern. How did you do it?
