Melanie Berg

I’m Melanie and in my real life I’m a former IT specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear.

I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I spend my time combining colors, shapes and textures into freewheeling designs that are uniquely my own. I’ve been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small, and I’ve also self-published my own patterns and e-books. I love collaborating with creative types from all over the world.

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.

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!
