Rick Mondragon, Knitter's Magazine editor 2000â€“2017, has been knitting and sewing for over 45 years. His passion for color is obvious in his work, but underlying all his designs are technique, fit, and construction. He has been teaching for 30 years, offering ideas and insight for perfecting skills with needles, hooks, yarn, fiber, fabric, and thread. Rick loves the challenge of garment design and deconstructing and translating a pattern into words. With STITCHES uniting, he now has time and reason to explore deep into the fiber arts.
