In an effort to bridge the age gap between youth and the elderly, Granny's Finest beautifully utilizes the concept of community knitting. Through organized knit sessions the two age groups can bond and exercise their creativity. Based out of the Netherlands, Granny's Finest combines the skills of an older generation with the creativity of young people, resulting in stylish knit wear available for purchase online.

The community knitting project specifically caters to fashion students looking for an outlet for their designs. Through discussions with women who have been knitting for decades, they decide how to construct pieces sold under the Granny's Finest brand. This also serves to address the loneliness many seniors feel, while teaching youth new skills.
