Amigurumi Corgi Pattern

Hi! :)
It has been a very long time since I wrote and posted a free pattern on this blog. Today, I will be showing y'all a step-by-step tutorial and pattern for this adorable amigurumi corgi!

Corgis are my favourite breed of dogs. :) Don't they look so cute?
I really wanted to make an amigurumi version of a corgi, so I grabbed my tan and white yarn along with my Clover 3.75mm crochet hook: 
First, I began to make the head:
Head complete!

Next, I made and sewed on a muzzle for the nose and mouth and a white triangle to go on top of the muzzle:

Next, I crocheted the ears and sewed them onto my corgi's head:
Then, I made the body and sewed it on the head:
Finally, I made the limbs and sewed them all onto the corgi's body:
Update: I made a bigger version of my corgi by using thicker yarn and a larger sized crochet hook

~~~

    1. Hm...I rechecked to pattern, and it is correct. If your ears are not pointy, then maybe you can follow this pattern:
      Ears( make two)

      Ch 2
      Rnd 1: 6 sc in the second ch away from the hook(6sts)
      Rnd 2: sc in every st around(6sts).
      Rnd 3: 2sc in every st around(12 sts)
      Rnd 4: sc in every st around. (12 sts)
      Rnd 5: {sc 1, 2 sc in the next st} repeat around. (18 sts)
      Rnd 6-8: sc in every st around
      Bind off with a long tail for sewing.
