A book’s cover says volumes about you to your fellow sardine-tin-squashed travellers. Make sure yours says nice stuff by showing off your stitching and keep your hardworking book comfy with The Commuter Book Cosy. When it’s your stop button it up, hook your finger through the fastener and get going. Your book will thank you and that nosy bloke across the aisle won’t have a clue what you’re reading either. Ha!

ALL CHANGE The humble Book Cosy can be very easily adapted. Make a cool two-colour Penguin classic, a dark and dusty detective novel, a hairy monstrous tome with teeth, a sugar-coated sunshiney summer read, a blood-red book of fangs and shadows, or a moss stitch rune-embroidered elvish fable. Take any pattern or stitch style and use it in the Cover part of your book to cosy your papery friend in the storybook style of your choosing. Just remember to check your gauge isn’t wildly different first.
