And a couple more pics are posted here, including a very undignified one displaying his accessories separately:

The pattern is from Debbie Bliss Toy Knits. I used a sock yarn called JaWool, which is a superwash wool. Pirate Rat is very small; I was going to include a picture of him with one of my real rats to show the scale, but it's the middle of the day and they are sleeping Smiley

Anyhow, Pirate Rat is for a gift swap. I will miss him, but hopefully he will make someone very happy.

Holy crap.  That's amazing.  I want one.  This should SOOO be a featured craft.  By the way, does he have a name?

I just call him Pirate Rat. Since he will be given away, I'll let his new family name him Smiley

Your swap partner is so lucky!  Did you make up the patterns for all the accessories yourself?  They look amazing all together.

Thanks Smiley No, I didn't design any of it myself, though I'd like to think I could. I just followed the pattern. But it wasn't easy - this is tiny yarn knit on tiny needles!

Wow that guy is great! Every time you have to do multiple pieces on something like that it makes it much more difficult cause you have so much more finishing to do.
The picture of him without his clothes is hilarious, poor guy looks so deflated without his scary outfit.
Now I have to add another knitting book to my wish list  Angry .....  Wink

Oh, wow. I love him. A lot. That kind of thing would be perfect for my pirate-obssessed friend. I'm really jealous of your swap partner.
