Johnny is a skinny tie in 1/1 ribs with selvedge. It's worked from bottom to top with double decreases making the transition to the neckband. You need only one skein to knit Johnny, which makes it a perfect project for a quiet Sunday afternoon.
The box contains all you need to make Johnny. There's in any case a skein of Greener Wool Mergelland and a print of the pattern, but you can optionally add circular knitting needles, cable needles and a tapestry needle.
