You'll need fun fur or an eyelash yarn for the neck. You can then just crochet a sort of scarf and wrap it around the assembled toys neck and whip stitch the ends together. If you use the same yarn it was crocheted with it should blend in and you won't even be able to tell the piece was flat.

Making the tube and the ears will be next to impossible to get step by step directions since we aren't the ones making the whole critter.

but for a tube simply chain the amount of the piece as if it is flat, then Slip stitch it together and sc in the round from there till it's the desired length. Then slip stitch and fasten off.
You'll probably have to play a bit to get it to look just right but that's fairly normal when you are making something without a pattern! Don't be afraid of the yarn!

for the ears think of them like a cone. you will basically be starting with at least 4or more Sc's in the round, then build out from there. when you finish the piece you flatten it and attach it to the head. It looks like you will increase to the widest point of the ear, do a few rows even, then decrease just a little.

Once again Don't be afraid of the yarn! If you let the fear of ripping out get to you you'll never get it done, but if you think of it a s step to the end result you'll get it done! And if you use stitch markers  mark when you get the parts to look right and if you have to rip things out rip back to that point and start from there.
