Harry Hill’s TV Burp Knitted Character

Knitted_character_TV_BurpFirst things first, “Knitted Character” is quite clearly crocheted and if you’re a crafty type (like me) that probably bothers you every single week (a handy reminder that crafty types nearly always need to get out more).

Thankfully, the people who actually made the original Knitted Character toy are equally pedantic, and take the trouble to point out the crafting faux pas on their website. Cloth-Ears sell the Knitted Character (and a bunch of his friends) for £10.99.

However, there’s a bit of a waiting list – unsurprisingly – and if you’re really desperate for your own yarn bunny, some eBay sellers have cobbled together an approximation of the Knitted Character that almost passes for the real thing (if you squint).

If you fancy making one yourself, a pattern like this Amigurumi Crochet Bunny Pattern is a good place to start as is this Easter Bunny Pattern.

If anyone finds an actual pattern for the Knitted Character out there, please let me know!

    It bothers me every week as soon as I hear the word knitted! I always imagine living rooms around the country filled with stressed out crafters.

      Thankfully, they made up for it by pointing out the error in the final episode. I like to think our gentle moans got through to a fellow pedant on the production team.

    Thanks for linking to my bunny pattern – that’s really kind. Lol at your post! It’s the little things that drive you nuts isn’t it… we must defend crochet at all costs!
