Let me remind you that I am in a coed pharmaceutical fraternity called Kappa Psi (Beta Psi chapter).  Yesterday was our formal rush, which is when all the interested students decide to pledge.  It was very successful!  Although I didn’t make it to any of the rush events (darn rotations!), I did get to meet a bunch of new ladies and gentleman who are pledging to be brothers in our fraternity.  This is super-duper exciting for me!  It’s my favorite time of year.

So, I made up a pattern for a hat like this a while ago.  I lost the pattern.  Then I made the pattern up again.  I think it is basically the same.  I like it.  It doesn’t match my coat, but it isn’t coat weather yet.  Comment if you’d like the pattern.   Leave your name and email.

    This is magnificent. You did an awesome job!
    I hail from Gamma Omega chapter and I’d LOVE the pattern to make for this year’s Christmas exchange!

    (Psst, why isn’t this in KP colors? For shame!)

    Woo Hoo. Epsilon Eta. We don’t get much cold down here in South Florida but I would rock that thing for the 3 days that are under 50 degrees!

    Stumbled upon this Googling “PTBYB”
    Greetings from Gamma Pi over here in St. Louis! I’d kill to have one of those right about now, this weather has been deathly the past few months!

    I also found this page by googling ptbyb! I’m from Gamma Delta at Ohio Northern University so a hat like this would have been pretty useful for me from about October til last week (it literally snowed last week lol)! Anyways though, this is really cool hat; I love the creativity!!

    I too googled PTBYB (still don’t remember what it stands for… opps), but I want that hat for the terrible Chicago winters! Greetings From UIC KY Chi Chapter 🙂

    Greetings from Beta Nu (Creighton). Like so many others here, I found this page googling ptbyb. Ironically, it snowed here in Omaha today and it’s APRIL!! Could have totally rocked this hat today! Great job! it looks great!

    Hey, my name is Stephanie, and my husband was Regent of the Gamma Pi Chapter in St. Louis a few years back. He is looking for me to knit him a new beanie, and I would love to surprise him with this! Also to note: I have a friend just starting pharmacy school at UK who plans to rush Kappa Psi, so if he follows through he could have one too!!!

    Thanks in advance!

      I’ve moved about 4 times since I created the pattern and unfortunately no longer have it anymore, but I’ll try to re-create it and put it in a reply or a new post ASAP. So happy you’re interested!
