German designer Melanie Berg has paired with Knit Purl & Portland dyer Bumblebirch to celebrate the connection between cities in this exclusive pattern. Named for the distance between Bonn, Germany (where Melanie lives), and Portland, 5190 Miles is a striking wrap that features a shell dip stitch to heighten the synergy between colors and offer a new approach to colorwork. As Melanie says, "Knit this in the colors of your two favorite cities as a reminder that no matter how far apart they are, everything is interwoven."
