Add some whimsy to your library with a set of Arts and Crafts-inspired Fair Isle bookend cozies. Worked in the round with little finishing required, they’re a great project for stranded knitting novices and experts alike.

These bookend cozies can also be modified to fit larger bookends.

This is a great stash-buster project.
