Melanie Berg

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.

Please direct support requests to support@mairlynd.de or post them to the pattern support thread.

If you run a LYS and would like to stock hardcopies of my patterns, you can find more info here.

Each month, a donation of 89 EUR of my pattern sales is going to Plan Deutschland and supports two young children as well as two aid funds. Thank you for contributing!
