Melody Hoffmann

I’m Melody a twenty-something year old French lady, living close to the woods in Riga, Latvia. I wake up every morning with the goal of owning a piece of land, somewhere in rural France, where I’ll be able to keep working with yarn and fiber while growing a vegetable garden & raise children. Embracing this creative life has been the most fulfilling thing that I have ever done, and I feel so grateful & blessed to be able to share my journey and work with this amazing online community of fiber fanatics <3

I am a self-taught knitter, and for a as long as I’ve been able to hold the two knitting sticks, I have been obsessed. Yarn is oxygen for my hands, and I truly believe that knitting is my language.

Mandarine’s was born two years ago, when my first ever design was released. Yarn is my true love, and I feel so blessed to be able to create patterns that transform thread into beautiful knitwear pieces. My work is mostly inspired by nature, minimalism and folklore.

When I’m not knitting, cuddling my yarn or taking photographs, you can find me walking in the woods, foraging for wild food, dreaming of owning a piece of land.
