Product Description

Inspired by the vast sea and stark, beautiful cliffs of Helgoland (a famous German island in the North Sea), this asymmetrical triangle shawl is lightweight and warm. A wide swath features a two-color stitch that is easy to knit and looks lovely from both sides, while a striking contrast garter section creates interest. Tassels add a fun touch. It’s beautiful in a sea-and-sand-inspired palette, or find color inspiration in the natural beauty of your own backyard.

About the artisan

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.
