Clare Mountain

Hello! My name is Clare Mountain and I am the founder of Sister Mountain. I live in London, England in a little flat with my fiance, Ulysses.

I fell in love with hand knitting in 2003, knitting obsessively throughout my teenage years and later, got my degree in Fashion Knitwear Design in 2013. I worked in the knitwear industry for a short time, before realising that the realities of fast fashion weren’t for me, after having spent so long making my own clothes.

Sister Mountain is my website devoted to knitting a more wearable wardrobe. I design modern, minimalist knitting patterns for aesthetically conscious knitters and teach you how to enhance your knitting with clever, easy-to-understand techniques.

I am passionate about encouraging more people to quit the cycle of mindless consumption and make their own clothes.
