A Crafty Way to Drive a Project

We've all heard of grandmothers knitting sweaters for family. But three Swiss women, ages 78 to 90, took on the mother of all knitting projects and came out with a unique product — a sweater for the Smart car.

The finished project, called "Knit 'n' Roll," resembles a giant roller skate. It was initiated by the Senior Design Factory, a Zurich-based organization that pairs young designers and older craft workers. The women had help ­ — a machine partly knitted the cover while they focused on details like shoelaces.
