Its size may vary according to the materials you used.

Snout

Use white
Round 1: 5 ch, skip 1 ch, 3 sc, 3 sc in the last ch, sc in the opposite 2 ch, inc (10)
Round 2: inc, 2 sc, inc, 1 sc, inc, 2 sc, inc, 1 sc (14)

Nose

Use brown to embroider nose onto snout. The nose is 4 sts wide at the top, and 2 sts wide at the bottom.

Attach the snout to the front of the head. The top of the snout is sewn between Round 9 and 10, below the eyes. Fill the snout before close the hole.

Round 3: sc in each stitch (8)
No need to fill the ears. Leave long end for sewing. Sew ears onto the head.

Use brown to embroider stripes onto the head. Each stripe consists of two strands of yarn, so once you embroider one stripe, go over it again to embroider that stripe once more so that it consists of two strands of yarn. You can add the stripes wherever you would like. I added 3 stripes on the top of the head, 2 stripes on the sides of the head and 2 stripes at the back of the head.

Don’t cut the yarn at the second leg. Continue to work the body.

Round 13: *4 sc, dec* 3 times (15)
Round 14: *3 sc, dec* 3 times (12)
Fasten off.

Use brown to embroider stripes on the body. I added 3 stripes on the sides of the body and at the back of the body (each stripe consists of two strands of yarn).

Round 1: 7 ch, skip 1 ch, 5 sc, 3 sc in the last ch, sc in the opposite 4 ch, inc (14)
Round 2: [1 sc, 1 hdc] into a stitch, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 2 sc, inc, 1 sc, inc, 3 sc, 1 hdc, [1 dc, 1 hdc] into a stitch, 1 sc, sl st (18)
