Grannies knit Smart car tea cosy

Twenty grannies have spent two months knitting nearly 70lbs of wool into a trendy tea cosy for a Smart car.

The project was the brainwave of Zurich-based company the Swiss Senior Design Factory and had the aim of bringing young designers in touch with older crafts people.

The giant car cover depicts a lace-up trainer and exposes the car’s wheels, making it into a giant roller skate.

The designers have contacted the Guinness Book of Records to claim the world record for the biggest hand-knitted car cover.
