From page 152:

Sometimes a special yarn needs only the simplest of stitches to truly celebrate what makes it unique. Michele Wang’s pullover makes use of Stockinette and textured Tweed Stitch to showcase the beautiful and unique texture of 100% baby yak down. The antural color is used throughout the top portion of the body in a pale oatmeal hue, while the hem utilizes the darker, more common brown of yak fiber, overdyed to a rich, slightly heathered navy. Try not to be lured by the speed of bulky stitches and larger needles, and take the time to treat this knit as meditative, giving each stitch the attention it deserves.

The sweater is knit using Desert for the main color and Midnight Blue for accent.
