The zany wool jerseys with which David Bain has become inextricably linked were his own design.

The vivid yellow and orange jumper Bain wore to court after his arrest in June, 1994, appeared on the front page of most dailies at the time and gave him a name as a fashion disaster.

Today the High Court in Christchurch, hearing Bain's retrial, was told his mother Margaret knitted the jersey for him to his own design.

Margaret's sister Jan Clark said Margaret had told her it was the most difficult jersey she had ever had to knit because she had no pattern.

"She was always knitting," Clark said.
