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.
