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

Sew the two body pieces wrong sides together.

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

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.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
