Margaret Holzmann likes to design and knit the BIG things: blankets, throws, and sweaters. She uses these larger items as a canvas for colorwork, shapes, and texture. She excels at construction techniques, the geometry of knitting, and color use. Following a career as an engineer at Bell Labs and Jet Propulsion Laboratory, she is now a full-time knit designer living in Monrovia, California. Her patterns have appeared in many knitting publications; her first book was published in 2021 and she published her second book in 2022.
