Bert from Sesame Street Sweater Pattern

HELP! PLEASE!

I have been looking for a Bert sweater pattern. That is Bert of the Sesame Street Bert and Ernie fame. I have found Bert intarsia sweaters, but that isn't what I am looking for.

My partner is knitting himself the Ernie sweater from the Son of Stich and Bitch pattern book and he wants to make me a Bert sweater so we can go as Bert and Ernie for Halloween and other various non-halloween days. You would freak if you knew how well that fit our personalities. HA!

Does anyone know where I can find such a pattern? Please and Thank you.

Can't help with the pattern

Can't help with the pattern search but it sounds like a fun project. Looking forward to the photos. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

you can do the top down

you can do the top down raglan pattern I am using obsessively as of late (Diane Soucy #991) - and just alternate the colors - I did the color changes at the back left raglan - where it's a little less obvious... it worked really well!

and when you have knitted a new color round, for the round #2, slip the 1st stitch of the new color, then continue - it reduces the # of stitches in that colum by 1, but keeps the stripes from doing the "step" thing... check out "jogless stripes" videos on youtube, etc., if you don't know how to do this...

single row stripes are hard to disguise, but it'll all work out :) -

can't wait to see what you do!

Where is this Raglan pattern

Where is this Raglan pattern you are referring to. I have been dying to try to knit my first sweater and I am looking for a pattern that is easy enough to do and at the same time look good.

Could you use a side to side sweater pattern and just use colors similar to the pictures?

It doesn't exactly cover the whole pattern, but the "Knit One Below" technique would be a good start for the vertical stripes.....

I had no idea there was a published Ernie sweater!
...so I did a google search and found a link to the woman who knitted the sweaters for the Muppets...here's the link:

I think you can just adapt the striping to a basic sweater pattern.
