Knitted Bing Bunny from CBeebies

Kameron really wanted a Bing Bunny after he saw how big Korey’s Crochet Bing was. I wanted them to look different to tell them apart easily, so I chose to knit one instead. Rather than design one myself, I figured it would be quicker to use a pattern. I chose to use the Santa pattern from the “Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special” pattern booklet (pictured above), but used chunky yarn to make it bigger. However, I did crochet the t-shirt, dungarees and pants in the same way I did for the Crochet Bing. This Bing ended up even bigger than the crochet one. Then Korey wanted one this size, which he now has! They both love Bing and he is much softer and more squidgy than crocheted Bing.


The finished size was 4ft 3inches (131cm).


The pattern called for working in knit (garter) stitch and stockinette/stocking stitch.  These are some of the first stitches you learn as a beginner.

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 15] knitting needles.

The knitting needles I used were circular 10mm/UK 000 [US 15].


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.


Crochet 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/needles.

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 James C. Brett Top Value 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;

- 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 creative joy and inspires you to start your own yarn-tastic journey.

Let’s get yarning!
