A knitter for 50 years, a designer for 35, and a teacher for almost 25, Margaret Radcliffe is the author of the bestselling Knitting Answer Book (Storey Publishing, 2005), The Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques (Storey Publishing, 2008), and Circular Knitting Workshop (another bestseller, Storey, 2012). Margaret's newest book The Knowledgeable Knitter (also from Storey) was released in September 2014
Margaret’s 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 readers. As a designer, her specialty is rewarding garments that look complicated but rely on the simplest knitting techniques. As a publisher, she focuses on patterns that help knitters learn new techniques and improve their skills. As a teacher, Margaret enthusiastically teaches everything from beginning knitting to garment design, and is acclaimed for her ability to help all knitters to become independent and creative.
Margaret's many teaching venues have included 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, cruise ships and windjammers, and shops and fiber guilds across the U.S. and into Candada.
Like many knitters, Margaret has a varied background. She has degrees in Medieval Studies and English Literature, has been a teacher, auditor, programmer, business executive, research administrator, dancer and editor.
