Knitted Character Creation

Oh. My. God. One my favourite TV shows is hosting a competition so awesome I'm a little afraid to enter it, I'm so excited all my imagination has run out of my head screaming "aaarrrgghh this is awesome!!" It's Harry Hill's TV Burp that are running the K Factor, an X Factor style show for Knitted Characters! I need to knit a character and take a picture of me holding it.
Now I've already discussed how the original Knitted Character is not knitted but is, in fact, crochet so what I'm wondering is can I crochet a character instead as I prefer crocheting when making 3d models. Looks like I'm going to have to have a peek through the rules and see...

It's similar but not identical. I think the original is more rabbity, where the link one is more bear-y!! I know you can buy the real ones here: http://cloth-ears.co.uk/Products/Softtoys/harry%20_hill_knitted_character.html (when they have them in stock that is!!)
