Margaret Hubert is the author of more than 20 crochet and knitting books, including Plus Size Crochet, Knits for Men, Knit or Crochet--Have It Your Way, The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet, The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting, The Granny Square Book, Lacework for Adventurous Crocheters, Runway Crochet, and Customize Your Knitting. She has enjoyed a lifelong career designing both crochet and knit patterns for yarn companies and book and magazine publishers. Hubert also teaches at yarn shops, retreats, and national gatherings, and rarely misses a national conference in the needle-arts field. A world traveler, Hubert pays close attention to the fashions in Europe and spots trends as they hit New York. In 2012, in fitting tribute to Hubert's lifelong work as a knitting and crochet designer, the Crochet Guild of America inducted her into their Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall of Fame. Her work and information about the events she attends can be found on her blog: margaretshooksandneedles.blogspot.com. She lives in Pawling, New York.
"The latest in a continuing series of photo guides, this book features full-color photos of techniques with examples and practice projects. Veteran knitting and crochet teacher Hubert (Knit or Crochet: Have It Your Way) has dozens of stitch samples clearly pictured and charted. This guide will be useful for crafters beginning to experiment." -- Library Journal, February 15, 2010
