5 Free Patterns to Get You Through Blue Monday!

Are you or your friends feeling a little under the weather lately? There might be a scientific reason why people are in a bit of a funk at the moment – “Blue Monday” is coming up!

Both the name and date come from a travel company called “Sky Travel” and first made their appearance in 2005. Blue Monday is the third Monday in January (this year it’s the 15th) and is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year!

How can they be sure of that you may ask? Well, there are two equations they take into account several factors including time passed since Christmas, debt level, weather condition, and time spent sleeping.

To be fair, the whole thing is probably less than accurate, and not exactly scientifically sound, but it’s true that by the end of January, we might feel the Christmas and New Year cheer fade. But don’t worry! A little bit of crafting can get you back on track in no time – after all, crocheting has been proven to be good for the body and soul!

Check out our free Blue Monday crochet patterns to get over your Winter Blues! And don’t worry, only 5 more months until the happiest day of the year in June!

    Hi I just wanted to say thanks for the patterns you have. They are so easy to follow.
    My first love is crochet . I always thought the patterns were so pretty….but me and two + needles was not for me. Now I have a great appreciation for crochet patterns. I am learning more stitches + technique and it’s sometime looks like knitting things. I appreciate the free patterns as well…so thanks 🙏
