Forky Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Have you watched Toy Story 4? I know, it came out last year, but all of my coworkers that I asked said that they haven't seen the movie yet, so I'm just shocked.

I don't know if I can be friends with them... (Hahaha... Just kidding, if you're reading this!)


I felt a bit impartial about the movie at first because I found the ending of Toy Story 4 really sad. I can't foresee another Toy Story movie in the future with the way that it ended.

I still think Toy Story 3 is my favourite.

Of all the characters in Toy Story, Mui seems to be particularly fond of Forky for some reason. He's made from TRASH!!!


At the Disney Store, Mui was holding onto this Forky plush toy and didn't want to let it go. Disney sure knows its way to a 2-year-old's heart. But I was not about to cave in and buy some "plush trash" for $25, so I told her that I will make her one.

This was a relatively quick project and I was able to whip it up in one evening.

I think it's relatively the same size as the one in the movie since I used a small spoon as "stuffing" inside the spork to help it keep its shape.

Because I only sewed on the sides of Forky's eyebrows and the mouth, you can manipulate it to make different expressions! Check out my many expressions of Forky:

My husband asked me what the difference was between "Unsure Forky" and "Questionable Forky".

I wasn't really sure how to explain it other than in my mind, Unsure Forky is rethinking his choices and going "hmmm", whereas Questionable Forky is more like "huh? what's going on?"

During the making of my amigurumi Forky, Mui just kept taking it away so it made it very difficult for me to get good photos of him before he gets all played with dirty little toddler hands.

It's actually very cute. Mui often goes, "Forky, where are you?" just like Bonnie does in the movie. We nicknamed him "Sporky" and declared him to be Forky's cousin.

Pattern


  • Base


Using a cream colour yarn...
Round 1: Magic Ring with a base of 6 sc (6 sts)
Round 2: sc inc in each st around (12 sts)
Round 3: [sc, sc inc] x 6 times (18 sts)
Round 4: [2 sc, sc inc] x 6 times (24 sts)
Round 5: [3 sc, sc inc] x 6 times (30 sts)
Round 6: sc blo in each st around (30 sts)
Round 7: sc in each st around (30 sts)
Round 8: [3 sc, sc dec] x 6 times (24 sts)

Before continuing to decrease, I put a small piece of circular cardboard to help keep the base flat.
Round 9: [2 sc, sc dec] x 6 times (18 sts)
Round 10: sc in each st around (18 sts)

Stuff a small amount of poly-fil to help keep the spork in place.
Round 11: [sc, sc dec] x 6 times (12 sts)
Don't bother closing the hole as this is where you will be placing the spork and leave a long tail to sew and secure the spork piece to the base.

  • Spork


Using white colour yarn...
Round 1: Magic Ring with a base of 6 sts (6 sts)
Round 2: [sc, sc inc] x 3 times (9 sts)
Round 3-20: sc in each st around (9 sts)
(You can add on a few more rounds here if you want to give Forky a bit more length)

Round 21: sc inc in each st around (18 sts)
Round 22: [sc, sc inc] x 9 times (27 sts)
Round 23-29: sc in each st around (27 sts)
Round 30: [7 sc, sc dec] x 3 times (24 sts)
Round 31: [4 sc, sc dec] x 4 times (20 sts)
Round 32: sc in each st around (20 sts)
Before crocheting the spikes on the spork, I placed a plastic spoon inside to help it keep its shape.

Spike 1
Round 33: sc in the next 3 st, sk the next 15 sts, sc in the next 2 sts (5 sts)
Round 34: sc in each st around the spike (5 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a tail to close up the stitches and pull the yarn through the last st completely.

Spike 2
Round 33: sc in the first 2 skipped sts from Round 32, sk the next 10 sts, sc in the next 2 sts (5 sts)
Round 34: sc in each st around the spike (5 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a tail to close up the stitches and pull the yarn through the last st completely.

Spike 3
Round 33: sc in the next 3 skipped sts, sk the next 5 sts, sc in the next 2 sts (5 sts)
Round 34: sc in each st around the spike (5 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a tail to close up the stitches and pull the yarn through the last st completely.

Spike 4
Round 33: sc in the remaining sts (5 sts)
Round 34: sc in each st around the spike (5 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a tail to close up the stitches and pull the yarn through the last st completely.

Using a yarn needle, fasten off each spike by threading the tail of the yarn through the front loop only of each st from the outside to inside. Gently pull to close the gap. Then thread it into the amigurumi to hide the remaining of the tail.


  • Feet (x 2)


Using taupe/light brown yarn...
Round 1: Magic Ring with a base of 6 sts (6 sts)
Round 2: [2 sc inc, sc] x 2 times (10 sts)
Round 3-8: sc in each st around (10 sts)
Leave a tail to sew onto the base.

  • Eyebrows


Using red yarn...
Row 1: Ch 10

  • Mouth


Using blue yarn...
Top piece: Ch 5
Bottom piece: Ch 6

Assembly


Put the spork into the base and use the long tail of yarn left over from the base to secure it. Then, attach the popsicle stick feet to the base by sewing it on.

Using some hot glue, attach Forky's eyes.

Sew on the ends of Forky's eyebrows.

Sew on the top lip and the bottom lip separately.

Wrap the red pipe cleaner around the spork to make arms and fingers. One pipe cleaner might not be enough, as you can see how short his arms are on my amigurumi, but it only adds to its cuteness factor.

If you want longer arms like he does in the movie, you can try using 2 pipe cleaners.
