Melanie Berg: ‘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 colours, 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.’
Melanie is designing under the name of Mairlynd. She has been teaching at events like Edinburgh Yarn Festival and at The Loop London.
Besides her own patterns she is also designing for yarnbrands like The Fibre Co., Rosy Green Wool en quince&co.
The classes and lectures are in the English language.
