Margaret Radcliffe

Margaret Radcliffe is the author of the bestselling Knitting Answer Book, The Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques, Circular Knitting Workshop, and The Knowledgeable Knitter. Margaret has taught knitting since 1991 and began publishing her designs in a line of knitting patterns under the name Maggie’s Rags in 1997.

Margaret’s books explore knitting techniques in a depth well beyond what’s usually presented, in a way that makes both the techniques and their appropriate uses clear to readers. As a teacher, Margaret enthusiastically teaches everything from beginning knitting to garment design, and is acclaimed for her ability to help all knitters to develop their independence and creativity.

Margaret’s many teaching venues include the John C. Campbell Folk School, The Madrona Fiberarts Winter Retreat, The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) trade shows, Knitters’ Day Out, Houston Fiber Fest, the Schooner J&E Riggin out of Rockland, Maine, and shops and fiber guilds across the U.S. and into Canada.

Like many knitters, Margaret has a varied background. She has degrees in Medieval Studies and English Literature, has been an internal auditor, computer programmer, business executive, research administrator, dancer, and editor.
