Knitting with Novelty Yarns was written by Laura Militzer Bryant and Barry Klein.
There are 16 projects that all use novelty yarns such as eyelash, boucle,nub, brushed, ribbon and chain.
The book starts with information about the various yarns and there are photographs showing the different effects when the same stitch pattern is knitted in different yarns, The next chapter deals with taking measurements and obtaining an accurate fit and how to overcome any quirks your figure might have such as large hips or a large bust!
Next are the projects which include wraps, sweaters and jackets. Each design is knitted in two completely different yarns with full instructions for each one. Several different yarns are used in each pattern - ribbon with textured cotton, mohair with boucle and so on.
The last section in the book covers finishing and fixing disasters!
