Notes on the instructions:

SIZES
Hare: width about 18 cm, height about 16 cm.
Chicken: width about 18 cm, height about 16 cm.

ABBREVIATIONS
solid M = fixed mesh
hStb = half sticks
Warp = warp stitch (s)
Airm = air mesh (s)
M = mesh (s)
Rd = round (s)
Stb = chopsticks

GAUGE:
Stb in rounds with Catania Grande with crochet hook 4, 5 mm: 13 Rd = 8, 5 cm in diameter.
If the mesh size is different, use thicker or thinner needles.

BASIC TECHNIQUES:
Basic pattern: Crochet tr in solid or round sts in spiral round, while crocheting sts or fixed sts, ie there are no sts that replace 1st st at beg of round.
NOTE: When crocheting in Spiral-Rd, it is advisable to put a thread in a contrasting color after each round.
With this method, the number of M can be controlled better. Remove the thread after the end of the round and reload at the beginning of the round.

And this is how it's done:
