Knowing your knitting

8:09 pm on 19 June 2015

Dave Dobbyn's knitted jersey in his 'Loyal' video in 1988 has a special place in New Zealand music history, and the song itself has become iconic for the nation.

Dobbyn is working with The Phoenix Foundation's Sam Scott and Luke Buda on new material. So the Music 101 team have taken it on themselves to update the jersey he wore in the 'Loyal' video. It has also lead to a knitwear-off within the team.

Dobbyn will be on Music 101 this weekend - and he'll reveal what happened to the jersey after the video was filmed. If you think you can do a better job of colouring the jersey, submit your pics over on Facebook.
