Margaret Hubert is the author of more than 20 crochet and knitting books, including Plus Size Crochet, Knits for Men, Knit or CrochetHave It Your Way, The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet, The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting, The Granny Square Book, Lacework for Adventurous Crocheters, and Runway Crochet. 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 needle art designer, the Crochet Guild of America inducted her into their Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall of Fame.
