RND 2: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into each DC of previous round; and work [2 DC, 2 CH, 2 DC] into each 2 CH space (corner); SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH
RND 3: CH 1, work 1 SC into each DC of previous round; and work 3 SC into each 2 CH space (corner), SL ST into first SC

RND 1: CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 11 DC into ring (12 DC), SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH
RND 2: – work in back-loops only – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), work 1 DC into same ST, work 2 DC into each DC all around (24 DC), SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH
RND 3:work in back-loops only – CH 3 (counts as 1 DC, work 1 DC into same ST, work 1 DC into next ST.
*Work 2 DC into next  ST, work 1 DC into next ST. Repeat from * all around, (36 DC), SL ST into 3rd of 3 CH.

There are lots of tutorials on the web on how to crochet the loop stitch:

Sew the two body pieces wrong sides together.

CCW-FARMYARD-PATTERN-068CCW-FARMYARD-PATTERN-069

Stuff body with some fiberfill/toy stuffing before completely sewing close.

Leave a starting tail of approx 10 cm

Ears: Insert hook into a loop on the side of the head – see photos

Fasten off and leave a tail approx the same length as starting tail

Repeat for other side
Knot the two tail together on the front of the ear – to shape the ear.
