Margaret Radcliffe

Author of the the bestselling Knitting Answer Book (Storey Publishing, 2005) and The Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques (2008). My newest book, Circular Knitting Workshop, was published in March 2012. My 4th book, The Knowledgeable Knitter, was released in September 2014.

In 1997, I founded Maggie’s Rags(TM) and publish a line of knitting patterns under that name.

My books explore knitting techniques in a depth well beyond what’s usually presented and do so in a way that makes both the techniques and their appropriate uses clear to knitters. As a designer, my favorite garments are ones that look complicated but rely on the simplest knitting techniques. As a publisher, I focus on patterns that help knitters learn new techniques and improve their skills. I teach everything from beginning knitting to garment design, with emphasis on helping all knitters to become independent and creative.

I have taught in many places and for many organizations, including the John C. Campbell Folk School, The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA), Stitches Expos, The National Needlearts Association (TNNA), The Madrona Fiberarts Winter Retreat, Webs, KnittaPalooza, Knitter’s Day Out, on cruise ships and windjammers, and for shops and fiber guilds across the U.S. If you’re interested in taking classes from me, you can find my teaching schedule on my web site.
