Bing bunny from CBeebies

We love Bing!  After I made Hoppity, Korey wanted Bing bunny too. I looked online to see if there were any crochet patterns for him already in existence but I couldn’t find one. So I made up a design myself. Also, because of Hoppity ‘s size, I thought Bing should be large enough to be able to hold Hoppity. He is HUGE! As I am the queen of  “MAKE IT UP AS I GO!”, that is what I did for the clothes too! I even included pants (or “dangaroos” as we call them in our house)! Korey loves his Bing and because he is so big he can use it as a pillow as well as a cuddly toy. Although, he does have trouble carrying it up and down the stairs.


The finished size of Bing from the top of his ears to the tip of his toes is approx. 3ft (94cm).


I worked all items in UK Half Treble Crochet/htr [US Half Double Crochet/hdc]. I also worked in the round on Bing, the dungarees and the t-shirt, and in rows on the pants.

Bing Yarn

Red Heart Lisa Big (shade - Black 199).

4 x 200g (7.1oz/131yds/120m) balls.

Weight category: UK Super Chunky [US 6/Super Bulky/Super Chunky].

Tension/gauge: 8 stitches x 12 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 10mm/UK 000 [US N/15] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 6mm/UK 4 [US J/10].  Although, this ended up being too small and the stitches were too tight but we were too impatient to redo it.


I would give the Red Heart Lisa Big yarn a 2 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was easy to work;

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it wasn’t brilliantly soft and I found that it frayed and bobbled very quickly;

- You, obviously, do not get a lot on a ball but it does go further if you knit with it rather than crochet;

- The cost of yarn is expensive - I paid about £4.50 per 200g ball but it is now £5.20;

- Would I use this yarn again? NO.


Dungarees & T-Shirt Yarn

King Cole Pricewise DK (shade - Red 009, Shamrock 039).

3 x 100g (3.5oz/308yds/282m) balls.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].

Tension/gauge: 22 stitches x 28 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the King Cole Pricewise DK yarn a 4 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was extremely easy to work;

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- You get a good amount on a ball;

- It is a good quality yarn;

- The feel of it was super soft;

- The cost of yarn is very reasonable - I paid about £1.95 per 100g ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? YES.


Pants & Button Yarn

James C. Brett Top Value DK (shade - White 8428, Orange 8443, Black 8430).

1 x 100g (3.5oz/317yds/290m) ball.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].

Tension/gauge: 22 stitches x 30 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the yarn James C. Brett Top Value DK a 4 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was extremely easy to work.

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it is very soft once washed. Although, for large projects is does get very heavy.

- I think if you are looking for a quality budget yarn this is one of the best yarns on the market for price, colour choice, quality, multiple uses and quantity on a ball.

- The cost of yarn is very cost effective - I paid about £1.65 per 100g ball.

- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY.


I used oddments of yarn for the eyes and patterns on the ears and made the mouth out of felt. I tried to crochet a mouth but couldn't get the shape quite right. I also used toy stuffing to fill Bing.


I hope this brings you #creativejoyandinspiration.
