Have you heard of Knitters for Doctors Without Borders already? I’ve started a fundraiser to support this worthy organization in doing heroic work all around the globe, and my goal is to raise 10,000 EUR for them. To make a start, I’ve donated the first 1,000 EUR, and by now we’ve reached the fifty percent mark. Will you join in? Every donation counts and is more than welcome! ♥
I’m Melanie, and I combine texture and color into wearable modern designs that are both playful and beautiful. I design to surprise — from matching cheeky stripes with elegant lace, to choosing unexpected color combinations. I love to collaborate with other creative types around the world, and my patterns have been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small.
I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I find inspiration in the landscape, history, and culture.
In knitting, the possibilities are endless! Want to join me on the journey? You’ll find a Ravelry group for discussing my patterns, for test knits and KALs here.
If you run a LYS and would like to stock hardcopies of my patterns, you can find more info here.
