Rata De Dos Patas

The Name

Rata De Dos Patas by Paquita la del Barrio

Based on the color selection, this hat is the “green” gansta hood – in other words – una rata de dos patas! Honestly, it was the a random title selection from my music library.

Ugh, I’m tired of trying on hats >ha ha<

The decrease was for increased fit. Suggestion: If you are using a striping effect, decrease on dark color.

I apologize for the photography. I got paranoid, as my mugshots stared back at me from my photo library…then I thought, I already did model several others…and if the government wanted too, they could UNDO the filter and figure out who I am! ha ha Still…not taking chances, but trust me it looks fresh on this head…very skater-ish…oh, and I just found a skater beanie pattern I’ve been wanting to try.

The Yarns

Unknown Black

Color: Gangsta*; Content: Acrylic**; Weight: 4, Worsted***

Unknown Green

Color: Scarecrow*; Content: Acrylic**; Weight: 4, Worsted***

I am presuming yarn contents and weights; the color names were what came to mind as I was constructing it.

Personally, I am looking for more bulk around the melon. Perhaps more like a tam? I love the slouch on this one – don’t remember if I styled it for photos or natural slouch. I think I might have held on to the brim, swung my head back, and maybe smooshed it down with my hand?

Slouched portion – styled, or not – looks gnomish to me…I am digging it!

The name says it all, having come first this time. One of my favorites, from an old-time favorite band.

The Slouch Skully

Dimensions: 12-inch (D) x 14-inch (H)
Pattern: Pokeball Slouch Beanie by Black Cat Crochet

This skully fits snuggly enough; I am wondering if it is the single crochet. As you can tell from the pictures, the skully is slouching; and I had nothing to do with that slouch – no manual positioning.

Just not crazy about the colors; definite charity donation. However, for the purposes of this post it is serving it’s purpose, in addition to a hoodie from my sweatshirt.
